"The engineers keep the building running. Without us there’d be no hot water, heating, no air conditioning, no lights, and that makes me feel good about my job because I know I’m making a difference to people. Engineering is a very difficult industry to get into for women because it’s not thought of as a women’s area. Stereotypically we are seen as weaker, so I do get a lot of comments and things. I get offered physical help a lot too. I think we’ve still got a long way to go with equality, and especially in engineering." – Beth Hoblyn, Apprentice Maintenance Engineer #ImperialWomen
