What this douche is really saying is that the title of this article is all she believes women can do, if they re not part of the academia elite...No offense to those of you in academia. I have been in the oil industry for over 20 years and I personally know or observed a total of ZERO (0) women employed as prostitutes or maids because of the expansion of oil & gas activities.
Fracking boom only creates jobs for women as prostitutes, maids: N.Y. activist - Washington Times: "A key figure behind New York’s statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing says that losing out on oil and gas jobs is no big deal because the industry only creates work for women as prostitutes and hotel maids.
In an April 6 lecture at the University of Pittsburgh, biologist Sandra Steingraber of New Yorkers Against Fracking described the fight over oil and natural gas development as a feminist issue.
“Fracking as an industry serves men. Ninety-five percent of the people employed in the gas fields are men. When we talk about jobs, we’re talking about jobs for men, and we need to say that,” said Ms. Steingraber in a video posted on YouTube by the industry-backed group Energy in Depth.
“The jobs for women are ‘hotel maid’ and ‘prostitute,’” she says. “So when fracking comes into a community, what we see is that women take a big hit, especially single women who have children who depend on rental housing.”
Supporters of the industry swung back by citing a 2014 report from the American Petroleum Institute, which found that women filled 226,000 oil, gas and petrochemical industry jobs, or 19 percent.
The report predicts job opportunities will grow for female and male petroleum engineers, managers and others by 70,000 from 2010 to 2030."
