Nissan of Auburn Celebrates Women’s History Month

Over the years, history can be easily forgotten. Therefore, months like Women’s History Month are a great way to remember those who came before us. When it comes to women’s history and automotive, March is the perfect time to remember the many women who made a huge difference in our industry. That’s because March is Women’s History Month, and here at Nissan of Auburn, we want to take a moment to recognize the women who moved the automotive world forward throughout its history and those who are doing so today. 

For instance, one thing we take for granted today is the non-reflective glass used for our vehicles. Imagine the nightmare driving would be, especially at night, if sunlight and headlights were reflecting off every glass surface on our cars. Yet, this is a problem that had to be solved, and it was solved in 1938 by Katharine Blodgett who created a liquid soap that could be spread over numerous layers of glass to make it virtually non-reflective.

Many years later, there was Gladys Mae West. She managed the team that created the SEASAT and GEOSAT satellites, which orbited Earth and helped us develop the GPS system we all rely on to get where we are going.
