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.

I had friends who found what i do with my handbag that they followed suit. I know it may sound like a "pain to do" kind of thing but i do realise how safe it can be after reading your discussion. Maybe the car boot can be the glove box for the handbags after all.
