The Dutch Government’s Emancipation Policy (2007) acknowledges that women’s careers in The Netherlands are fraught with a number of obstructions. In that context, this video tried to explore the status of women in the Dutch water sector. A variety of views is captured: some women argue that the sector is still quite inhospitable to women, others contend that barriers are only in the mind. One thing, however, is quite clear: an official emancipation policy has certainly effected an increased in the number of women water workers over the years.
