    Van Girls is one of the funniest (and funnest) articles to ever have  been in the mag. It’s one of my favourites.

    my industry particularly needs more diversity, and I fully support it.

    but every other linkedin post this morning seems to be a result of the marketing dept rounding up all the women they could find in the office yesterday and posting an awkward group photo on the stairs in reception.

    my industry particularly needs more diversity, and I fully support it.

    To celebrate IWD, I participated in a review meeting attended solely by men.

    We did have a lady taking the notes, but we swapped her for an external contractor in the afternoon.

    Absolutely agree, that one was a thoroughly good read.

    @yeahtee – did you mistake STW for Mumsnet? 😂

    FWIW our local social media is full of beaver jokes since they started releasing families of beaver in the area. I think I’ve likely heard every possible variation already.

    My thoughts today (and other days) are with females working as Firefighters. They continue to suffer horrendous abuse, bullying and misogyny. I was working when our Brigade accepted our first female recruit, gradually things became better, more women joined and it was not considered unusual. This was aided by our union, the FBU, and a progressive county council, a process that was subject to a constant barrage of abuse from the press and right wing politicians. In my last ten years I witnessed the deterioration in the progress made over the previous 20 years, this was aided and abetted by a management for whom it was convenient as it pandered to the bullies and didn’t affect them in their Masonic lodges!
    So, on International Women’s Day, I appeal to all men who rely on the “macho” image of the job they do (whatever it is) for their own identity to instead get their inner strength from being fair and honest with themselves and others. To female and ethnic minority Firefighters – some of us tried, it cost us dearly, but we tried.

    A someone who works in an organisation with a ratio of women:men of 27:7 we, like STW, just get on with it.

    However, as wheelsonfire points out so many do still face significant challenges. And for that and more IWD still has a place.

    Great article, sadly some of the comments have left me questioning the self-awareness of the respondents.
