Young female vulcanizer's viral video shapes narratives

Not only are women occupying top executive positions in white collar professions but are also steadily building careers in manual fields that were strictly dominated by men, and a young woman is paving her own career path in a so-called man’s world.

More and more women are defying the odds to break glass ceilings in professions mostly occupied by men and a young female vulcanizer has gained attention for venturing into a field that decades ago, and perhaps today, socially defines masculinity.

And for centuries, gender roles have influenced women’s career choices, usually because they have been conditioned via culture, education, sometimes relational association and other factors to believe that certain jobs or professions are 'solely' for men.

But in a video that has gained quite a traction, a young woman, has been bulldozing her way through social constructs to define her own career path while trashing stereotypical and false narratives that suggest ‘’women belong to the kitchen.’’

All her life, this young female vulcanizer says she’d ventured into jobs typically ‘reserved’ for men.

She disclosed that she first worked as a security woman and had previously worked in male dominated fields before her current job.

While her story isn’t exclusive because far many women have shattered so-called glass ceilings to reshape global world views of the woman’s place after they achieved extraordinary feats, her story has ignited once again, a conversation around women’s issues particularly how gender roles influences the proportion of women who study and take up roles in the Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Also, her story conveys a powerful message that would empower young girls to defy the odds because really, these barriers are mostly systemic impositions by men to entrench male dominance, which they can shatter to materialize their dreams.

Hopefully, her story would serve as an incentive to young women to dare pursue well-paid, and relatively secured jobs in the STEM, own their dreams and achieve unthinkable feats.

Girl, the POWER is yours!
