Submitted to Blog

March 8 is International Women’s Day, and here in Rusto Garage we're pleased to recognize this global day that celebrates the achievements of women.

About International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality. 

Marked annually on March 8th, International Women's Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:

  • celebrate women's achievements
  • raise awareness about women's equality
  • lobby for accelerated gender parity
  • fundraise for female-focused charities

The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2022 is  #BreakTheBias. Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field.

I first met Talena at The SEMA Show 2021 in Las Vegas and when she spoke about her mission I knew it would be a perfect fit with RustoGarage. So I sat down with Talena Handley, owner of Girlie Garage. The mission of Girlie Garage is "to make women safer and more confident on the road". 

We’re so pleased to spotlight this smart and skilled female entrepreneur, who works in the non-traditional field of auto mechanics, and we know you'll learn a few things from Talena and Pete's conversation.
