Women in Trucking

Ellen Voie, chairwoman of Women In Trucking, filled us in on this wonderful movement sweeping the continent (and beyond). Consider joining this great organization helping women in trucking!

Coalition of Women Truck Drivers

Adriesue ("Bitsy") Gomez is a woman truck driver from Los Angeles who started the fledgling 150-member Coalition of Women Truck Drivers, an offshoot of the L.A. chapter of the National Organization for Women. They have cells in Dallas, Atlanta and central California.

The coalition is working for

  • Separate rooms for male and female drivers on overnight stops, and relay driving (with just one driver on each stretch of the run).
  • On-the-job training for women;
  • No special tests for drivers already licensed in their categories by the state (women truckers charge that the tests are used to weed out female applicants) and
  • Adjustable seats and pedals so women cannot be disqualified for being too small to drive a large truck
