The Feminine Fix-it Handbooks
I’m actually kind of a fan of this book. Aside from the dated advice, it is actually a pretty good book. It’s written without any cutesy condescending language. I am also a big fan of the vocabulary/definition appendix in this book. Jargon is often an extra layer of complication when someone is learning a new skill. My nerd librarian self loves good footnotes, indexes, etc. The author/publishers recognize that the use and organization of the information is also critical. Regardless of gender, this is a pretty decent book.
My mom was actually quite the fixer around our house. She was never afraid to pick up a tool and figure something out. My mom would have liked this and even back in 1972 would have definitely disliked a “feminine” version of a repair manual.
