are still fighting at the range, and women belong at home (especially
are in the manufacturing business). I want to show them what we have done

This experience of mine might give you a helpful insight. I recently had to
re-create for a new German customer the documentation I had already done for
an American customer. The reason for the recreation? The American
documentation "looked too expensive." (direct quote)
I re-did the piece to their specifications, and although the finished
product cost more to produce, they were very pleased with the result because
it looked cheaper. That was part of the image they were trying to convey to
their customer base -- no unnecessary frills.
