Motor Girls: How Women Took the Wheel and Drove Boldly Into the Twentieth Century - Sue Macy

Staff Pick

Women vied for a place behind the wheel as soon as the automobile made its debut. Despite concerns that women driving would upset the social order, Motor Girls (National Geographic, $18.99) joined men on the road and forever changed the roles of women everywhere. Through vintage photographs, primary source material, and a lively narrative, author Sue Macy chronicles the bumpy road faced by many women from the turn of the twentieth century through World War I seeking to stay in the driver’s seat. A foreword by racecar driver Danica Patrick gets the book off to a speedy start. Ages 11 to 14.
