'when you need the strength of a man with the detail of a woman'

I think you know my answer is a resounding yes Yes ~ considering I'm a handyWOman

& yes the most degrading thing is not to get down & dirty ~ but rather when people would rather pay the non-jew or the male when I'm a struggling single mother who pays attention to detail Banging head

Personally, I would have no problem hiring someone who knew what she was doing, but I would never want to become one and need to be in some interesting and not so modest positions in someone else's home, potentially with men around. That is my personal feeling.

I agree with greenfire. Women in general have a nicer touch. I would hire the woman in a heartbeat.

As it is, whenever we need to do small electrical/plumbing work in the house, my dh does it while I guide him step by step. Call it a women's sixth sense? Then I have to make him feel like he did this great job all on his own!

maybe someone should start a woman's line of clothing for these rough jobs.

good luck

There is plenty of women's clothing suitable for rough jobs.

To start most of Boro Park looks like they may be wearing it: just change the straight skirt to a slinky black skirt, black t-shirt, black sneakers a black bandanna- your on!! Laughing

I am the OP. I would without a doubt in my mind wear a skirt with pants or shorts underneath and then if the circumstance arises I would take off my skirt. I have no problem with that. Meaning, if I was, for some reason, ankle or knee deep in something other than water, I would remove my skirt. I dont even have to thing about it.

hmm.. That is one interesting job for women! the thread title made me smile. Not that I have anything against it, it's just that I've never heard of any female plumbers. but who knows maybe people will appreciate it bc of yichud issues and it'll turn out great for you.

But, we'll all know who you are since you'll most probably be the only one:)

Lots of hatzlacha!
But you have no idea what country I live in Very Happy so I think my anonymity is pretty safe Very Happy

If she had a good reputation no problem at all. In terms of cleaning ladies I don't find it a demeaning job at all. I don't feel demeaned cleaning my toilets I like cleaning.

I have a friend who is a master plumber. She is great at her work. Her truck has been personally painted: its a faucet with flowers coming out of it. And the words "I fix what your husband repaired"
