Tradesmen? sexist title. There are women who work in the building trade as well as men. Screwfix needs to catch up with the 21st century. I'm sure someone will have something to say about my comment like, tradesmen is only a word, or, I shouldn't take it so seriously. Equality still has a way to go :(

Fair point about the sexist title. It's like the title postman (always assuming it's a male) More and more females are doing these types of male labeled jobs which are still assumed to only belong to males. So yes Screwfix should change it to Tradesperson/Tradesp
eople or similar.
