IN GOOD HANDS
Documentary, In Production, ~40 min
In Good Hands gives voice to five people who have challenged gender stereotypes to find meaningful careers working with their hands.
The seed for this project was planted in my childhood. Growing up, my mother became a carpenter after my parents’ divorce. She decided that as a single mother she needed a stable career and one that would pay better than her desk job. Since becoming a mother myself, I appreciate even more the courage it must have taken to pursue her career, and am fascinated with the story of how she managed the slivers, the bruises, and the sexual discrimination at work.
This project has been made possible with the support of the following organizations:
