Patricia Schechter: Women on the Road: Some Paths to the Present | 6:55pm

Is “hitting the open road” just a guy thing? Did Thelma and Louise have to die?  There is a rich history to women, travel and ideas about freedom–especially involving the car–and it might not be what you think.  This short lecture sets the play “26 Miles” in context with a look at a few key moments in recent cultural history, with a few surprises along the way.

Patricia A. Schechter teaches women’s history at Portland State University.  She has published a number of books and articles, included the co-authored volume with Avel Louise Gordly, Remembering the Power of Words: The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator, and Community Leader (OSU Press, 2011).
