Where are all the women?

Women Tube drivers, bus conductors and railway workers have helped to keep London and the country moving over the decades, however only very few of these notable women are represented in London’s transport history. 

London Transport Museum is asking the general public and organisations to contact them with stories about female family members, ancestors or employees who may have worked in the transport industry in London or across the United Kingdom from 1800 to the present day. The Where are all the Women? project at London Transport Museum aims to put women in the spotlight by highlighting the lives of these women who carried out important and skilled activities in a male-dominated workforce.

Do you know of a great-aunt or grandmother who worked on the buses, London Underground, trains, passenger boats or the Port of London authority?
