International Women's Day and Cross Engineering Services
Today is International Women's Day. We have decided to spotlight a woman who helped engineer the Brooklyn Bridge, Emily Warren Roebling. Though most commonly known for being the wife of Washington Roebling and for her role in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, Emily accomplished much more throughout her life, such as obtaining her law degree from New York University’s Women’s Law class which she had enrolled in 1899.
