Women in Manufacturing
Women make up nearly one third of the manufacturing workforce in the United States. A common misconception is that women can’t do the job due to the “physical” nature and that is certainly not the case. Women continue to be underrepresented in the manufacturing world and is a pool of untapped talent. Women are working on the production line and in some cases running their own manufacturing businesses.
