A true story about two sisters who skirted the rules - and made history!
Addie and Gussie Van Buren were raised to ignore stuffy rules about women. When WWI broke out, the sisters believed women would make excellent battlefield messengers. They set out to prove this by driving motorbikes across the country, dressed sensibly in leather coats and pants. Only, this was 1916, and women didn’t ride motorbikes. And women certainly did not wear pants! Zoom through history as these daring sisters change minds and challenge the fashion police, one pant leg at a time.
