A [Not So] Professional Look at Women in Fleet

A [Not So] Professional Look at Women in Fleet

While pioneers like Helen Bland and Helene Kamon set a tone of professionalism for women in fleet, the industry nevertheless was a real man's world well into the early 1980s. The pages of Automotive Fleet were replete with images of women draped over cars suggestively, and ads hinted at more than automotive performance. Appreciate this review of women in fleet in the context of the times. But for the real female pioneers, view our more serious A History of Women in fleet photo gallery as well.

A History of Women in Fleet

A History of Women in Fleet

The automotive fleet industry was no different than many others in terms of maintaining a "glass ceiling" for women, and the automotive industry has always been a male-dominated business. But we do have our female pioneers, from Helen Bland, who began her career as Hallmark's fleet manager in 1942 (and who ultimately was a founding inductee in the AF Hall of Fame) to Helene Kamon, the first female president of AFLA. In a 1970 article in Automotive Fleet on women in fleet, we asked each one their opinion of the "women's lib movement," but today we're only concerned about what a female fleet manager might think about the daily business of managing a vehicle fleet. We hope you'll enjoy this look at some very important women to whom the entire industry -- both men and women -- owe a great debt.
