The feminisation of the shed

An interesting post at a new blog from Tiger Sheds called Garden Resources on what they describe as the feminisation of the garden shed. Their conclusions is that "it’s clear that a definite shift in the world of the garden shed has taken place. The media has introduced home improvement as an activity for both sexes and that, along with an economic downturn, has encouraged a change in attitude toward that little bit of extra space sitting at the bottom of the garden." There's a particularly interesting link to an ABC article about the Sheila's Shed phenomenon in Australia.
