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”.
We were happy to take Zoe’s suggestion on board, because great ideas can come from anyone, including seven-year-olds! Good on you, Zoe! https://t.co/CanSuHBNXN

Fergus Gammie, the chief executive of NZTA said “I commend you for your suggestion and for taking action when you think something unfair should be fixed”.
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.
What do you think? What other professions should be inclusive of both genders?
