TO THE EDITOR:
Thank you for Project XX.
It’s not just the language of automobiles or the idea that women can’t drive. It’s the perception that we can’t do math, science or engineering that really hurts us (“Language barrier,” Oct. 23). It’s the difference between existing and not. Like Maggie Stiefvater, I design, build and race my own damn car, thank you.
I took to motorcycling awhile back because it’s hard to justify asking motorcycle riders if, indeed, they can actually ride the bike they just rode in on. The only people who do are — you guessed it — car guys.
