Women's handbags and cars.

I am amazed and pleased that finally a car maker has finally made a provision for a womens handbag. Considering the number of women who drive and own cars, and the fact that a handbag is as essential as shoes to women. I find it baffling it has taken manufacturers so long to make a provision in the car for a handbag. The glovebox is provided for a man's wallet, if needed, but women have had to put their handbags on the passanger seat or floor. This is not very safe as if you brake hard everything ends up on the floor or in the case of an accident the bag and contents can turn into missiles in the cabin of the car. Women do not want to put their handbags in the boot. This type of discrimination or plain thoughtlessness has gone on long enough. Finally there is a car on the market who accomodates the handbag. Hooray.

CAT17 says: This is fascinating! Which car manufacturer has finally decided women have needs too. You are right - the is somewhere for the drinks, somewhere for the mobile phone, somewhere for the tapes, cds etc. even the passengers get a place to put things, but nowhere is there a safe place for our handbag. I usually put mine on the floor but take my phone and garage key out and put them in a little "slot" on the console, that way they are where I can get to them if needed. I always drive with the doors locked too, no one is going to open my door without my permission! Safe driving!
