Look, Dad, a Girl Mechanic!

Posted by on 12/14/2012 to Info News
Women are not just about heels and makeup. They are also the queens behind the wheel and under the hood, which was, not so long time ago, unheard of for women. Tool belt strapped around their hips, grease stains on their lovely, flawless faces were but “a man’s work.” The societal limitations have been barged through a long time ago. Though, there is still a lack of encouragement from society for women to pursue such passion in auto mechanics, Girls At Work, a New Hampshire nonprofit organization, aims to change that.

Behind this organization is Elaine Hamel, a woman who grew up around five brothers. She had struggled to fight for her passion in construction. It took her a number of companies before she found one who’d accept her for a job. It is because of this struggle that she started Girls At Work that teaches girls how to use power tools (Read more at Huffington Post: Girls At Work). But there’s more to Hamel’s ambition than just proving that girls can also do manly jobs. She wants these kids who are facing the worst possible challenges in the world to find the strength and courage they need to continue living well and right and that they have an equal chance of achieving anything as long as they put their minds into it.

So, there’s your girl auto mechanic.
