Why Not?”

Doralice S.

I got it into my head: “One day I’m going to work on the docks.” When they published the job openings, I applied and asked my boss to refer me. We went to the director and he said: “Women cannot do it.” “Why not? Show me which clause says we can’t. I fulfill all requirements. It is my right and I will fight for it.” Then he tapped me on the shoulder: “Come back here, Girl. Study. If you study, you’re in.” I passed. For the physical test there were 70 men and I was the only woman. I passed as well.
