Put your Snuggie away and find some allies

Woman in Snuggie

I drove by a construction site on my way to work this morning. A piece of safety equipment caught my attention. It was a cone that read: ‘Danger, men working above’. On the surface, it was accurate. I should be careful, and the people working above the sign were men. It also made me consider how it would feel to be one of the few women working on the site. To walk by an overt reminder that you are different. Every day.
