    Brenda Berkman, Former New York City Fire Department Captain, Talks Women At Ground Zero
    First Posted: 9/7/11 02:51 PM ET Updated: 9/8/11 08:09 AM ET

    Captain Brenda Berkman has been a crusader for women in the emergency services since she challenged the barriers to women entering the New York City Fire Department in a successful law suit in the late 70s, a fight chronicled in the 2006 PBS documentary 'Taking the Heat.'

    Berkman not only won women a fair path of entry into the department, but she went on to become one of the highest ranking women in the NYFD over the course of her 25 year career. She worked at Ground Zero from the morning of September 11, 2001 until the site closed months later.

    Retired from the department since 2006, she is the founder of the “United Women Firefighters” organization in New York City and Director of Women First Responders of 9/11, a group formed to publicize the stories of women who served at Ground Zero.

    With the 10th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center approaching, Huffington Post Women caught up with Berkman to talk about the part women played in the rescue effort at Ground Zero on and after September 11th and how their role has been covered in the media.

    Obama Jobs Plan: Women Pleasantly Surprised (y)
    First Posted: 9/9/11 03:27 PM ET Updated: 9/9/11 03:27 PM ET

    While men lost more jobs in the recession than women, women have been slower to recover, losing nearly 300,000 jobs since the economic "recovery" began in 2009. Some women's organizations were concerned that President Obama's jobs plan was going to focus on boosting male-dominated industries, such as construction and manufacturing, to the exclusion of the female workforce. Instead, he laid out a relatively gender-balanced solution to the jobs crisis.

    3 Reasons Why It Pays to Not Let Sexist Comments Slide

    Your colleague Jim calls you “honey,” makes cracks about women drivers, and suggests that you be the one to shop for the retirement gift for Bob because “women like that sort of thing.” A lot of the sexism that women encounter in the workplace looks like this – comments that are not necessarily meant to cause insult or discomfort, uttered by otherwise decent enough male coworkers who you generally like. But they are harmful nonetheless, because they perpetuate stereotypic views of women’s preferences and abilities. If you found yourself in a situation like this, what would you do?

    Good to see that the level of discussion around feminist issues has moved onwards and upwards since the days of Germaine Greer:D
