Women in Trade
Janet Kirlew, journalist and entrepreneur founded Women in Trade Magazine after moving to a new area and wanting to find women to dress her windows, plumb in her washing machine and do some electrical work. She knew a few outstanding tradesmen, but the feminine approach was more appealing. She started to wonder where these women were and how she could hire them. After a fruitless search, she knew that she had to something about this and this is when Women in Trade magazine was born, the UK’s only publication focusing on women in trades across all industries.
