On The Open Road

On the open road

This is a week in the life of Becca Kennedy, a 45-year-old, 5'3" female truck driver in a male-dominated field. She says she's been sexually harassed, ignored and pushed around because of her gender. But truck driving is what she knows to do and she says she'll stick to it, even if that means the long hours keep her away from her three adult children for months at a time. Becca travels with her 5-year-old chihuahua, Chloe, a few cartons of cigarettes and a pink headset. This is a small part of the many journeys she takes, told in pictures.
