Digital Discussion: Women in Transit

Wednesday, March 10 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free Online Discussion

In celebration of Women’s History Month, join Education Manager Polly Desjarlais for a digital discussion about women’s roles in transit over the last century.

Learn about pioneering women in transit, including those who joined the Transit workforce during World War I, became Transit Police officers in the 1950s, and were the first female subway operators of the 1970s and 80s. Explore the stories of women who thrived in traditionally male-dominated fields and how these roles have changed over time.
