From "Motor Girls" To "Kalamazoo Gals": A Celebration Of Women's History

Mar 27, 2017

We couldn’t let March come to a close without recognizing that it’s Women’s History Month.

This hour, we honor the occasion with tributes to the inspiring twentieth-century women -- the so-called "motor girls" and "Kalamazoo gals" -- who helped shape American history and American industry. 

GUEST:

  • John Thomas - Professor of Law at Quinnipiac University School of Law and author of Kalamazoo Gals: the Story of the Extraordinary Women (and a Few Men) Who Built Gibson's WWII “Banner” Guitars
  • Sue Macy - Author of the National Geographic book Motor Girls: How Women Took The Wheel And Drove Boldly Into The Twentieth Century
