Cross-Country Drive to Commemorate 100th Anniversary of Alice Ramsey’s Trip

In just a few short weeks Emily Anderson of Seattle, Washington will embark on a journey to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the first time a woman drove across the United States.  Alice Ramsay and three female friends set out from New York City in 1909 unsure of what their future held; they arrived in San Francisco fifty-nine days later, having completed the adventure of a lifetime. To commemorate the drive, which proved to be a significant event in the Women’s Suffrage Movement, Emily will follow Alice’s route in a renovated model of the car Alice drove. Emily has kindly decided to raise funds and awareness for Women for Women International! We are so grateful for her pledge and are excited to follow her progress as she makes her way across the country. Best of luck, Emily and we look forward to hearing more! Thank you for celebrating women everywhere!

    What an inspiration. I will be departing from Seattle on August 12, 2009 with a friend, her dog and her kayak on top of her van. We will drive across country also. However she is from Montreal Canada. May the angels and eagles protect us and guide us on our journies.
