Carhartt is a simple blog with a strong message. Women Can Accomplish ANYTHING! This celebration of women working hard at jobs that used to be male dominated is my kind of blog. CraftedinCarhartt.Wordpress.com

The only thing this blog is missing is some diversity. Why does that matter? It’s important to me because I grew up in a multi-racial family and have certain expectations. So I scoured the web and found a whole TWO more women doing their own thing while breaking stereotypes.

I am glad you like the reblog. Thank you for sharing and not getting upset for voicing my opinion on the subject. So often if I bring up a point like this people treat me as if I am this pandering racist white person and they don’t realize how mixed my family is or how important it is to me for diversity to be celebrated and reported as often as possible.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
And you’re right about needing to include more diversity.
I’m actually half hispanic myself.
My dad and his family came to the states when he was young.
It’s important to represent the breadth of all of the amazing ladies out there.
And thank you for the two leads– I’m going to look into reaching out to them.
I’m always searching for women to put on the blog.
Love your blog! keep up the great work.
