Home Repair Isn’t Just for the Guys Any More
"Anything BOYS CAN DO, girls can do better" is the motto of this site. A home repair site skewed toward women. There is a major article written by a woman on each of the major topics of the site: Auto and General Repair, Lawn & Garden, Woodworking, Decorating, Plumbing, and Electrical. The articles are fairly lengthy and tend to be discussions of the actual experiences of the writer as much as providing actual specific information on the topic. Articles are written to help empower women whether they are doing repairs themselves or whether they are contracting others to do the work. Women who are fairly new to home and auto repair will learn a great deal in a casual and non-threatening manner.
