IWD 2021 – 5 Historic First’s

The International Women’s Day (IWD) organisation describes as “Celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key.” Given the fact that this year IWD falls on a Monday and the day I publish my blog posts, I’ve decided to do a post on five women that, through their firsts, changed the face of travel and transport for the better. Covering both the railways and aviation, these five women were true pioneers, and whilst you may have heard of some, a couple are lesser known but deserve to have their achievements shared.
