Trading a Pink Collar for a Blue Collar

Too many working women in Israel are stuck in low-paying, pink collar jobs.  The Israel Women's Network is trying to increase their income--as well as break down critical stereotypes--by working with employers to make typical "male" jobs a better fit for women.  For example:  the IWN, in cooperation with a rapidly-expanding bus company, held an open house for the firm (see a picture of the flyer, above) that targeted several dozen potential female drivers. Now four women are on their way to better paid, union jobs with benefits.
