CDN marks International Women’s Day


To mark International Women’s Day, Car Design News celebrates influential women car designers past and present 

Car design, like many ‘serious’ creative disciplines, has historically been a male-dominated industry. Progress towards a more equal gender split has not matched the velocity of the product itself. Nevertheless, there are some incredibly talented women designers working today. Think of Cadillac’s Crystal Windham or Nissan’s senior manager of design Michelle Christensen. Or, if you are feeling nostalgic, look back to the 1950s and Ruth Glennie’s Fancy Free Corvette, which set the scene for a new wave of female talent to exert their influence. 

We’re glad you’re enjoying Car Design News
