Coming Soon: In Her Own Wright In Her Own Wright

    • History

Until a few years ago, most biographers and historians treated Katharine Wright as a minor character in the Wright Brothers saga, but dig a little deeper and a very different picture of the Wright sister emerges.

She embodied the worldly, independent, and self-fulfilled New Woman who turned traditional gender roles on their heads at the turn of the twentieth century.

Hosted by Harry Haskell, Katharine's step-grandson, In Her Own Wright shines a light on the extraordinary woman who has long stood in the shadow of the world-renowned fathers of powered flight.

Part 1 coming February 6th.
