Leadfoot Ladies: Enter to Win a Copy of ‘Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide’ by Patrice Banks
Females in the automotive industry experience sexism on the daily. Whether that’s questionable looks when you tell people what you do, your knowledge being questioned when compared to your male colleagues, or even for female customers in the dealership. If a couple walks into a dealership, the salesperson often turns to the male for most of the details. Patrice Banks, founder of Girls Auto Clinic, decided she didn’t want women being pushed aside in the car industry any longer. Her book, Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide, empowers women to stand up for themselves and learn more about their car with helpful tips, infographics, and more.
