Some stories refuse to be ignored, despite concentrated effort to erase contributions women have made in techno-industrial fields.

Artist Pat Benincasa tells the story of thirteen women who defied spirit-crushing social norms to invent, race and design their way in to automotive history.

Their stories are timeless because the truth of their lives is like an IOU: The payment of their achievements comes due with every woman who dares to make her own way in the world.
