This article talks about rebellion, which has always been a prominent piece of American history, but it has always been associated with world changing events. Rebellion is an action that is anything, regardless of size, that is out of the ordinary that results in personal change while on the road. Unfortunately, Rebellion on the road is gendered, meaning that while men can rebel and change wherever they wish, women can only rebel on the road, and all the personal changes women make disappear as soon as they leave the road. This is largely due to the social spaces constructed by certain cultural norms. This paper specifically looks at Free Air by Sinclair Lewis, Frank L. Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and Hope’s Highway by Dorothy Garlock.
