The class is being described as an opportunity for women to become “a more educated vehicle owner.”

Tools, gloves and rags are being provided, but women are also being encouraged to bring their own, KSAT reported.

They all must wear closed-toed shoes and clothing that can get dirty. Long hair has to be tied back and no jewelry that dangles will be permitted.

The classes, which guarantee there will be no “mansplaining,” are taught by women for women, KSAT reported.
