And I assume sir, that she was the very best at what she did.

This is a good example. If you have someone who happens to be female but specialised. The principle kicks in. To be squaddie blunt; who cares if they have a Johnson, if their saving  lives quicker than you son, your out of luck.

Given that Steampunk celebrates an era when a rather large part of the globe was ruled by a woman...Queen Victoria, I'd say that women could attain high positions in a steampunk situation.

The first use of an aircraft for advertising was an airship that carried the message 'Votes for Women' and if memory serves me right Santos Dumont used to send one of his female servants to the shops in one of his airships. So clearly there is a history of early women aviators, although it doesn't get the coverage it deserves.

If I can put together the basis of a factual account of women in charge of airships with a couple of books from my bookcase then who can question you writing a fictional account of a woman in charge of air forces?

Go for it !!!
