Today I recieved an interesting email from a reader (email below)
maybe there are girls out there who feel the same and want to learn how to handle it
"I am a Kuwaiti woman that really wants to learn about car mechanics. I want to learn about it because it's important. When I drive my car, I always wonder if my car is ever going to stop in the middle of the road or high way. I wouldn't want to wait for my brother or father to come fix it and I definitely don't want to depend on a guy (stranger) either. The car is our only transportation source in Kuwait. Therefore, it's important for everyone who owns a car to know the foundations of its mechanics.
I went to the public authority for applied education and training (the only place that offers a course about car mechanics) and asked about the course. They told me that it's not available because there are no girls interested. They also said that in order to open the course, I need to have a list of at least 15 girls that are interested, and then the course would be available by May 2011. I decided to look for those 15 girls by designing this poster. The "I can handle it" poster.
Most of my friends don’t think any woman would be interested. Only 1 of my friends is in the list.
If you're interested, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
