Women and Route 66 Youth Workshop

$ 0.00

The documentary film series Route 66: The Untold Story of Women on the Mother Road explores how women overcame segregation and gender discrimination to build fulfilling lives for themselves and generations to come on America's most beloved road. This special event geared towards students and Girl Scouts grades 7-10 focuses on how women travelers navigated gender discrimination and overcame challenges on the Mother Road. Clips from the film series will be shown and several special guests will speak. Activities to engage students with this important history using primary sources are also planned. This presentation is made possible with support from the Petersen Automotive Museum and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration in advance is required. For more information about the Route 66 Women project, visit www.route66women.com.
