For a long time, a woman's place was in the home; she kept busy taking care of the family. Oftentimes, it meant long hours at the spinning wheel. But, at the turn of the 20th century, a different kind of wheel got her attention. The automobile set women on the road toward greater freedom and work opportunities. Some little known facts about Women at the Wheel: In 1916, the Girl Scouts started their 'Automobiling Badge' for girls who could demonstrate their driving skill, basic auto mechanics, and first-aid skills. Henry Ford began hiring widows and single women in 1922 to work in his automobile factory 'so they could dress attractively and get married'.
