1. BBC story and links there v interesting. Only 7% of English, AND US firefighters are women

IIRC 1 of earliest women firefighters was in Iowa City. She had a v difficult time fighting prejudice from men in the dept.

BBC story has link to an article about a US training camp run by women firefighters for young women who want to find out if they can do the job
