Firefighting isn’t easy, getting recruited as a firefighter is even harder, and women in firefighting getting recruited is probably the hardest single day challenge a person can face.
You don’t believe me? Only 2% of firefighters in Australia are women. The statistics aren’t much better in the rest of the world either. The US is similar to Australia at 2%. The best country’s stats I could find were in the UK, where 4% of firefighters are women. The numbers aren’t high anywhere in the world, and just getting recruited is only one example of the challenges women in firefighting have to face.
