Many school districts hang a poster in the labs that has a picture of a
woman using a white cane.  The message on the poster is "Carol didn't wear
safety glasses and now she doesn't need to."  There is a petition on
change.org asking the company that sells these posters to stop selling them
because of the negative message about blindness.
Someone also pointed out that even if you are blind you need to wear safety
glasses when working with chemicals.  Please sign if interested.
