I once heard this story about a woman, in some sort of instructor-type role, in an unnamed branch of emergency services. To make this story even more ironic, she wasn’t particularly well respected because she wasn’t really that good at her work to begin with.
Alas, self-awareness isn’t something many people possess. But then again, I guess, if you’re not self-aware, how are you aware that you’re not self-aware?
In a class for new hires, the story goes, she boldly proclaimed, “I expect more from women. I hold women to a higher standard.”
Isn’t this exactly what women have been complaining about MEN since time began in any profession, not just emergency services?
