Featured Video: "Car Repair is Women's Work"
by Ann Farmer
Car mechanic and mother Audra Fordin dons her work gloves to do a grease job on an automobile in her shop in Queens, New York. She's so comfortable under the hood that she's embarked on a mission to teach other women the basics of auto repair in monthly classes called, "What Women Auto-Know," donating proceeds to help fix the cars of women in need.
In addition, we invite you to send us short videos on the topic of nontraditional employment. Send inquiries to On the Issues at firstname.lastname@example.org
