Women Influencing, Buying, Designing, and Driving Automobiles

From the very start, women have been right there next to men – influencing, buying, designing, driving and racing automobiles! The history of women and automobiles is nothing less than fascinating. Beginning in 1888 with Bertha Benz’ historic long distance outing in a horseless carriage, we’ll explore a long list of female pioneers who left their mark on the automotive industry.
