Women in Construction : a Personal View

I cannot claim to be an authority on the subject on ‘women in construction’. Therefore I have subtitled this article ‘a personal view’. That is what it is - the perspective of a 30-something consultant engineer on the lower rungs of the management ladder. My views are based on my own experiences, talking to colleagues and the contact I have had with many schoolgirls over recent years talking at seminars to encourage them into engineering, or showing them what it’s really like through work-shadowing.
