Ep 206: The Only Female Plumbing Franchise in the World & Transitioning in the 1980s

When Hattie Hasan trained to be a plumber, no women trained to be a plumber. In fact there wasn't even a ladies' loo in the training centre. Now she has founded the only female plumbing franchise in the world with Mica May.


This week on Badass Women's Hour, hear badasses Hattie and Mica tell Harriet and Emma their story about building their clan of women plumbers that now forms, the excellently named, Stopcocks.


Nicole Richards transitioned from a man to a woman in the 1980s, at a time when there was no information and not much attention. Hear her argue that it's harder for people to transition now than ever before.
