Is anyone else thinking what I’m thinking? For many women, since we were children we’ve been pushed away from cars or anything mechanical, even if want to become familiar or learn about them. That is a space for men to inhabit. Any time we do try to address an issue with a vehicle or fix it ourselves, heaven forbid, we’re met with over sexism or dismissed by the “menfolk”. By the time you’re an adult, well, you get the picture.
