We Love These 4 Car Blogs By and For Women
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s roundup gives a deserving shoutout to a few car blogs targeted to women. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
The truth remains that women in the automotive industry are still few and far between. Yet, according to research, women buy 62% of all new cars sold in the U.S. and influence 85% of car purchases. But while women have a major influence on auto purchase decisions, they have remained dramatically underrepresented in the male-dominated automotive industry.
This week, I’d like to highlight four blogs that are the embodiment of female empowerment. The following car blogs for women provide a fresh and unique take on information about cars, and they represent gender equality within the automotive and motorsports industry.
Blogger Caroline is the founder and editor of Changing Lanes. Based in Ireland, she shares a passion for cars and has had amazing opportunities to drive hundreds of cars in her lifetime.
The blog features interviews with female professionals in the automotive industry, such as Australian car blogger Andrea Michelle Indy. Changing Lanes provides useful statistics and research presented in an easy-to-read format, so it’s a great place to start if you don’t want to do all the research alone.

A Girls Guide to Cars is an inclusive community of writers and reviewers that empowers women with helpful information, unique insights and shared experiences. The blog encourages women with purchasing power to make smart decisions within the automotive industry.
I especially appreciate the inclusive blog post featuring transgender racer and member of the LGBTQ+ community, Charlie Martin. With a “traditionally cisgender, male-dominated space” in the motorsport industry, it’s refreshing to see an LGBTQ+ racer represented.

Amy Shore is a well-established and experienced car photographer located in the U.K. who enjoys traveling and taking road trips. She has worked for prominent clients like Jaguar and Land Rover. The blog is simple: it provides visual storytelling revolving around people, cars and motorbike-related subjects.
“Put your own awesome stamp on the world.” – Amy Shore
Chaya Milchtein is an automotive educator and empowerment speaker. Her blog is one of the most inclusive and accessible blogs that I found. Chaya gained experience while working at a Sears Auto Center in automotive repair services. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, she is very much representative of minorities within the auto industry.
If you’re looking for more confidence as the average consumer, this blog will give you the basics before you spend a great deal of time researching on your own.
