Woman using steam press at Swindon Works, 1942

Although women were employed on the railways prior to 1939, work involving the operating of heavy machinery, as shown in this photograph, was considered to be unsuitable for the fairer sex. The severe shortage of staff during the war meant that the railways had to open up male only roles to female workers. The GWR was slow to embrace this fact, initially only allowing women to be employed in the more genteel roles within the company, and it was not until 1943 that women began to infiltrate into all areas of railway employment
