I've had female students (high school kids) tell me they want to do a trade, but there are no female mechanics/they wouldn't be any good/they'd get picked on/noone would hire them etc. I don't think I've got much chance of quelling their fears if I can't even do the same myself.

ETA: you only needed to watch the block to see how the female tradie and some of the female contestants were referred to, it's so blatant that it's ok to televise.

I saw a doco on women in the trades a few months ago. There was a young woman doing a mechanic apprenticeship and the owner said she was the best apprentice he had ever had - she was more meticulous, polite to customers, had a keener eye for detail. But even she said it was a bit of a baptism of fire when she started.
