Power tools in general are designed and targeted at a homogenous group of stereotypic males. They do this by using a design language that expresses attributes that are generally considered to be masculine, like power, strength and performance. This makes them less attractive and potentially unwanted by women and/or people that doesn’t identify themselves with that stereotype.
The target group for this product should not be the typical power tool user-group, not only because of the goals of reaching gender equality, but since more or less everyone occasionally has the need of a screwdriver in their homes - not only the heterosexual males.
