Recently I attended the Indy 500, which takes place each year at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on the Sunday before Memorial Day. For the last 20 years I have attended this incredible race and I have watched with excitement as women advance in both popularity and placement. Janet Guthrie paved the way for women Indy car racers in 1977 by being the first woman to qualify for the Indy 500. At that time in racing, an air of great resistance to women breaking into this manly world of car racing existed, but Janet boldly made her move and earned a spot racing among the world’s top Indy car drivers of her day. Lyn St. James is also known as a pioneer among female Indy car drivers, racing at the Indy 500 from 1992 to 2000.
At the 2011 Indy 500, a record breaking four female racers took their place on the track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the thrill of driving at speeds in excess of 200 mph, and a shot at taking the checkered flag. The names of these talented drivers are Danica Patrick, Pippa Mann, Simona deSilvestro, and Ana Beatriz. Retired driver, Sarah Fisher, is now a competitive Indy car owner. Sarah Fisher Racing put Ed Carpenter in the driver’s seat and he proved fast enough to qualify for 8th position.
Similarly, the Internet superhighway or the Web is another place that women are on the fast track to making their mark as writers, often experiencing great success in an arena that has a reputation for being male dominant. Women are increasingly influencing the Internet world through blog writing, video blogging, freelance writing, writing e-newsletters, providing tips, becoming SEO entrepreneurs and copy writers, and social media experts.
