Why are social workers so prevalent? It seems like 60 percent of the women my age are social workers. What did we have in common when it was time to choose a profession. The bleeding hearts club. We wanted to help. We were the listeners, the ones that wanted to figure out how, what steps to take to help. But I don't think social workers have a good reputation of being able to sway policy, which is what is needed for real change. Why is that so hard? Politics and social workers are different entities. They often are at odds.
