A seven-year-old girl has persuaded the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) to change its street signs to be more inclusive of women.

The NZTA is set to change signs that say “Linemen” to “Line Crew” after Zoe Carew brought up that  women can be line workers as well.

Zoe said that the sign was “wrong and unfair” to ladies who needed to be line specialists.

NZTA loved her proposal, saying that “great ideas can come from anyone”.

The NZTA will change the signs to read “Line Crew” instead of “Line workers”. Replacing the signs may take some time, and even invited Zoe to have her picture taken with the new sign when the change was made.
