Gender equality is so pervasive in today's modern workplace that many often forget that there are still industries out there that maintain a boys club attitude. That's why this story on a rise in female car dealers is such an interesting one. Since 1990 the percent of female dealership owners rose from 2.9 to 7 percent in 2004. Of course the story throws out our favorite statistic that women act alone or take part in approximately 80 percent of all car purchases. So why aren't they the ones selling the cars? Now it seems more are. In a show of the importance on women owners, GM launched a "women's retail initiative" to add more women owners to their dealership ranks.
