The act of fixing helps people understand their things. It not only fosters a sustainable environment and is economically sound, it promotes independence, self-taught knowledge, and confidence.
But fixing has been historically left to the boys.
Too many women, like myself, rely on men to fix their things—whether it be a broken phone or leaky faucet. However, fixing shouldn't be reserved for a select few, or for a particular gender.
It should be for everyone.
So no matter your gender—stop relying. Go out and fix something.
