It is the future, men and woman are now equal. Woman are able to do whatever a man can do. Hopefully it will get to a point where we no longer have to tell young people that "Girls can do anything" because telling them that gives them the impression that at one time, girls couldn't do anything. So I am praying that one day, that stops and it just becomes an unspoken truth that doesn't need to be said out loud.

Whether is be farming, military, construction, building a business, anything that is historically male-dominated is now proven to be also led by woman. 

Let's talk about Oysters industry, shall we? What I know about oysters is that they are mollusks and thrive in saltwater. And most importantly, they allegedly are an aphrodisiac. So, there's that.

So you ask, Why are we talking about Oysters? Great question, here's the answer. Meet Lady Shucker, she's a bad ass oyster person who is paving the way the female oyster farmers!

This occupation is growing and Libby Davis loves seafood. Oysters are something she especially has much interest in as she has been working on the waterfront for most of her life.

There is a need for coastal farming and because of that, more and more female-owned farms that are being created on Maine's coastlines.

It has always been rare, her being a woman in this specific industry.
Libby says,

“The aquaculture and fishing industry is, just historically speaking, is a largely white, cis male dominated industry,”

“The aquaculture and fishing industry is, just historically speaking, is a largely white, cis male dominated industry,”

“Sometimes I’ve felt that I kind of get pushed aside when I’m out on a boat,”

-Lady Shuckers Co-Founder Jacqueline Clarke

According to WGME

Libby and Jacqueline founded the "Lady Shuckers" oyster farming and they feel that even though woman are in the minority of this farming industry, it is slowing evolving and growing into an equal gender field.

They say that woman are making positive changes that are changing the direction of where this historically "male-led" industry is now heading.

According to the article, both woman created this company in which they advertise and sell oysters from Maine's 16 oyster farms run by women!

Their Facebook Page, called Lady Shuckers, promotes that they want to "amplify the voice of Women in Aquaculture"

This story is inspiring because not only are they female run and owned farm, they are also supporting other minority and female run sea farms in Maine!

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.
