Wheels: Women and Independence, 1900 – 1920

Celebrate the Suffrage Centennials at the Saratoga Automobile Museum with us this year!

This groundbreaking exhibit showcases the experiences of seven pioneer female automobile enthusiasts, with New York State as the starting point for their adventures.

At the time, women represented less than 10% of licensed drivers, and “autoing” was definitely not for the faint of heart.

Each woman has her own unique story to tell, with a passion for motoring at center.
