Divas dig DIY? You will be surprised

The apprehension (of some well-meaning friends): uByld is an excellent idea BUT my not appeal to the women folk. 

The fact (as beautifully represented by our statistics - 80% of our customers are women!!!): uByld is an excellent idea (we never had a doubt 
;-)) AND women folk are as enthusiastic (or perhaps a lot more!) as the men folk.  Oh, don’t be stunned! Given the fact that DIY itself is a very broad concept, it’s hardly surprising to find 
women involved in it some way or the other – music, fashion, art & craft, gardening, cookery, you name it!  
 
What is pleasantly surprising - but probably shouldn’t be - is that women are no longer shy of picking up a hammer or a drill gun, or a uByld kit ;-), and just fix, build, create! 
 
History is replete with women who “wore the pants” in the household and outside. Here are just a few of the many divas who loved to byld their own stuff: 
 
An English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what 
is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer!
 
 
 
 
 
An Irish journalist and aviator who, in 1910–11, became one of the first women in the world to design, build, and fly an aircraft.
 
 
 
 
 
 An Austrian and American inventor and film actress. She invented “frequency hopping” technology, which was put to use in a secret communications system and in radio-controlled torpedoes in 
 WWII, which in turn laid the foundations for future technological developments such as Wi-Fi and GPS. 
 
 
 
 
Gone are days of women drawing up a ‘honey do list’. Times are a-changing, and we, in India, will not be too far too long... 
We at uByld are ultra proud to play a small part in helping women in India adopt the DIY culture and byld something awesome for their families.
