I remember when my father was teaching me how to drive at 16. I was having difficulties learning parallel parking, as many people do. As I hit the curb for the third time that day, my father said to me what he still mentions every now and then in the midst of his road rage: “This is the reason why women aren’t good drivers, they’re too afraid.” I was never afraid of driving until that moment, and I have never not been afraid since that day.
