Fear Is Just a Feeling, The Fact Is That You Can

“I wish people knew that unions protect fair wages/benefits/rights for the working class, for people trying to make an honest living.

And, if you’re a woman and like working with your hands, there’s only one thing that can stop you from joining the trades, the fear of thinking that you can’t, fear is just a feeling, the fact is that you CAN.”

Join me on my search for the hardest working women around.

Hey y’all. I’m Jennifer Martinez, a native Texan and a Kansas City resident. Carhartt sponsors this blog in all its girl powered goodness, enabling me to travel around the US searching for women with awesome jobs that are tough and dirty. I get to know them, photograph them as they work, and share their stories with you. Let’s defy stereotypes, show what us girls are capable of doing, and we’ll do our best to get crafty along the way.
