What's the real history of woman and cars? I am going to look into it. Maybe I will find the Rosalind Franklin of electric cars. I ordered the book Tinkering today. The book summary says 'women drivers represented one group of consumers who used tinkering to advance their claim to social autonomy. ' I will post a review soon. Next, I think I will take a look at woman factory workers in World War II.
Please suggest books or woman I should research in comments. Go below the fold to see the cover of Tinkering, which is a woman by her car and Rosie the Riveter by Norman Rockwell.
