“iWomen provides education, support and advocacy for fire service women. The network is linked and strengthened by its respected publications, which carry informative articles on current issues from promotion and career development to recruitment programs and reproductive safety policies. Women who have chosen this field share not only a dedication to their work but also unique problems and issues. To help them deal with these matters, iWomen maintains an extensive bank of information resources on relevant issues such as physical abilities testing, hair-length standards, gear and uniform availability, firefighting techniques, reproductive safety and more. We offer guidance to women who must decide how to deal with sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination, and we provide strong, active support for the creation and growth of local networks of fire service women” (https://i-women.org/).
