All-Female Garage in France Lets Women Get Manicures and Oil Changes

Item: A female-friendly garage near Paris offers manicures and massages to customers waiting for their mechanic services. “Only Girls” caters to women who feel they have been taken advantage of by male mechanics who bet on them showing little interest in what goes on under the hood.

It’s no longer about prim, sexy, proper or pink—it’s about getting real and getting down to business. The push to get away from stereotyped products for women has been a long road coming, and giving it a little bit of a bite and an edge has done just enough to push it into a mainstream audience.
