Here is the link to a facebook page that I created for female firefighters. I believe that there is still a lot of unspoken animosity that exists from male FF's and have run into it in so many ways. I don't understand why women themselves seem to make the point for the men that if you are a woman and you are pretty and or sexy than you can put on bunker gear and have your picture taken with your bikini top showing but if your fat and ugly than you better stay out of the fire service altogether because women still do not belong there...For one thing..All women have the same rights that men do to work any job or profession that they choose to. Women can be great Firefighters and that has been proven over and over again.
This page has been created as an awareness tool for all women and not just FF's. Over time it seems that people tend to forget the lessons that others learned and the battles others fought so that all of us in this country of the USA, would have equal rights. One of the most important things we as women owe to ourselves and to our daughters and grand daughters is to ensure that women will never lose ground on their rights of equality with men.
The long and the short of what I am saying here is that Women have the right to be anything they desire to be but if we, as the young women's role models, continue to allow society to accept, and at times condone, derogatory treatment of any kind from men and sometime women as well, then we will have no one but ourselves to complain to when it happens to us. We will have no ground to stand on when our daughters are treated with disrespect and dishonor. We need to take a strong stand now because as it has been said, "If we don't stand for something now, we will fall for anything later on"
Please come and take a look at this facebook page. Anyone who wants to can freely comment and post. I welcome men and women from anywhere to say what they think. Thanks for reading this. Your Friend....Karen Brown
