"Paula Murphy: Undaunted"

Documentary Screening

During the turbulent 1960s, the quest for women's rights was invigorated. In motorsports, where names like Andretti and Petty transcended the racetrack, a lone woman emerged from their shadow - Paula Murphy. Fast, fearless, and versatile - auto racing had never seen anyone like her. Dubbed the "World’s Fastest Woman on Wheels," Murphy was more than a speed demon. When she hit the throttle, attitudes toward female drivers changed forever.
