Called the “Mother Road” by author John Steinbeck, the iconic U.S. Route 66 stretches some 2,400 miles from Los Angeles to Chicago, and is symbolic of the mobility available to Americans, and an iconic highway for many travelers. Yet much of the historical perspective of the highway that passes through Arizona has primarily focused on men, often overlooking the experiences of women and girls. Please join us for a screening and conversation with project director Katrina Parks, historians Heidi Osselaer and Olivia Charest, and archivist Sean Evans, on Route 66 from a female perspective.
