Women and Transportation

At the beginning of the 20th century the automobile helped bring the country together. Men could work farther from their homes and families could visit new places. Unfortunately, this new world wasn’t available to women. Women were thought of as weak and too fragile to drive.
Travel with me in my “way back machine”. We will have blue skies and calm winds as we learn about this unusual lady.
After World War 1 and everyone wanted to fly that world wasn’t open to women either. We all knew of Amelia Earhart but there were many other women that were pioneers in the field of aviation. Men thought it was much too dangerous for women to fly. But, these courageous women pilots flew anyway.
Male pilots didn’t want to teach women to fly. Some women had to go to Europe to learn because no one in the states would teach them.
