I am looking to gather as much information as possible from female firefighters on a number of issues; whether or not they were given the benefit of the doubt upon being hired (based on test scores and training background), their relationships with male coworkers vs. the relationships men have with one another, the culture of the department (how men perceive a women's ability, etc.), fire chief(s) strategies in educating officers as to the new challenges presented with female hirees and any other positive or negative experiences that have been professionally altering.
