High Voltage Women: Breaking Barriers at Seattle City Light,
with
Ellie Belew novelist and community historian gave me been a wonderful read with High Voltage Women: Breaking Barriers at Seattle City Light, telling the story of ten women Electrical Trades Trainees (ETTs) and their fight against intense, long-running discrimination at Seattles public utility. The book is a riveting account of what its like for women and people of color breaking into a segregated work force. Their strength, dignity and growing confidence radiate through " my sheros! Because we were there!
and
Megan Cornish recites her gripping story of a multi-racial group of women who put their bodies on the line to gain a foothold in the male and largely white electrical trades at Seattle's publicly owned utility in the 1970s, and how these women implemented affirmative action in the face of life-threatening sexism and racism. Because We Were There!
produced by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash
