Changing words

The all women convention at a jam-packed convention centre was throwing out of window all the men-centric words. The way it was going was like this:

The moderator shouted on the microphone and asked the congregation 'How do you want manpower to read?' And the convention in one deafening roar would answer 'WOMANPOWER!'.
Then, she would shout the next word, 'How do you want chairman to read?'
'CHAIRWOMAN!', the convention roared.
'How do you want sportsman to read?'
'SPORTSWOMAN!'
'How do you want man-hours to read?'
'WOMAN HOURS!'

It carried on like that till they reached …

There was an embarassed silence.

The congregation decided to let the men folk retain this last word...






'manhole'
