[] Women Doing Men’s Work!


10+ Powerful Photos Of Women Doing "Men's Work" That Prove There's No Such Thing As Men's Work
By​ Dominyka Jurkštaitė

How many times have you heard the old expression, "this is a man's job"? We're pretty tired of it, and fortunately, so is California photographer Chris Crisman. With his latest portfolio, Women's Work, he's documenting the women who do those 'men's jobs' with pride, and he's breaking down gender stereotypes in the process.

The story of Women's Work starts in early 2016, when Crisman heard from an art producer that a friend of hers had become a butcher, and realized that he had never actually met a female butcher. After meeting and photographing the woman, Heather Marold Thomason, Crisman was inspired to find other women taking on traditionally male-dominated professions. From farmers, to firefighters, to lobster fishers, he was able to locate and capture dozens of inspiring women from across the nation, and finally rolled out the project in October 2016.

Though Women's Work is now 'out there,' Crisman insists that it's a work-in-progress. "There are so many people that we would still love to include in the project, but we'll get there. I believe that Women's Work is the type of project where the purpose does not have an expiration date," he told APE in a November interview. The Penn Valley-based photographer is the father of 2 young children, including a daughter, whom he encourages to dream without limits and pursue her passions, even if others see them as unconventional.
