Women in remote parts of Australia are leading the way in transforming industries post-mining boom.
From trucks to motorbikes, groups such as the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls (PHHG) and Pilbara Motorcycle Sisters (PMS) are reinforcing positive changes in outback Australia.
Heather Jones, a trailblazer in the truck-driving industry, has been living in the Pilbara for more than 27 years.
“In 2013, or 2014 I think it was, there was a group of us girls in Karratha — 30 female truck drivers,” she told ABC TV’s Back Roads program.
“We threw a few names around and came up with Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls, and that was just the banner to promote the women in the industry.”
Ms Jones recognised that women currently made up just 1 per cent of the nation’s heavy vehicle driver workforce.
The Karratha-based, not-for-profit organisation has now led to two pink trucks being seen among the red hills and dirt on deserted outback roads.
It brings newly licensed truck drivers — men and women — into the industry, giving them real-life work with 160 hours of on-the-road training.
Ms Jones said there had been mixed reviews when the pink trucks first began moving on the Pilbara roads.
“To start off with there was a few noses out of joint up here because we had pink trucks, but they got used to it,” she said.
As time progressed, there was more demand, with as many as 500 people currently on a waiting list to join driver training.
Pink roadies keep on truckin’
A colleague of Ms Jones, truck driver Mel Murphy started her job 12 years ago.
She said it felt good to be taking on the role, despite disbelief from others that women could drive trucks.
“For so long it’s been a male-dominated industry, and slowly over the years it’s starting to change,” Ms Murphy said.
“It feels excellent … I love the challenge and yeah, every job you do is different.”
Ms Murphy said she originally copped a bit of flak when she told men about her job.
