Odiel Mennink – The Netherlands

Odiel Mennink is a car journalist and the founder of femmefrontaal.nl, a Dutch website that focuses on the female perspective on cars. As a car journalist, she wrote for AutoVisie/Telegraaf, Testauto, and several lifestyle magazines and she was nominated for the Dutch online VIVA400 award in 2013. In her spare time she races as a guest driver in the Mazda MaX5 Cup in The Netherlands.

She says that in The Netherlands, over 36% of car owners are female and the number is growing every day and, because of the strict Dutch tax system she believes women want and need to get good value-for-money with their cars.

“The appointment to the jury of Women's World Car of the Year is an honour. On my platform I focus on the feminine perspective of cars; in addition to reviewing cars, giving news, and writing columns, I also give women the opportunity to read and write about their own favourite car.
