HEY!!! Its Women's History Month

By Awayndesign . March 11, 2021

Women's History Month 2021

HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY!! to all women in all walks of life. We honor, celebrate and remember the pathways that have been created and the barriers that have been broken to give hope and inspiration to this Generation.

In this Month we spotlight,  

Elizabeth R. Duff

Elizabeth Duff was the First Black, and First Women to be a Metro Transit Authority Driver in Nashville Tennessee. She started back in 1974 and continued to break many strides and receive accolades in her over 40 yr career.

She was faced with many challenges as a women and an African American during these times. She broke the barriers in gender and color as she experienced sexism, racism, jealousy and doubt of her abilities. Through it all she made her mark and persevered. 

According to the Union President, Patrick Green of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local No. 1235 (ATU) he stated, "Duff as a graceful, dignified woman who did not draw attention to the barrier shattering role she played in the city's history. She paved the way for other women pursuing careers with Nashville MTA, including its leaders."

We honor and say, Thank You to Elizabeth in Memory and Remembrance for her courageous roll and legacy in short of her passing due to complications with the COVID-19 Virus.
