BADASS WOMEN: ANNA SHPENOVA

 

Anna Shpenova, from Saint Petersburg, Russia, became a firefighter at 25, & of course, nobody took her seriously, she was sent to extinguish burning garbage cans, etc.

but, she kept demanding to be placed on real crews to battle real fires, wore down commanding officer after commanding officer, & then proved herself to male peers, shattering the perception that only a man can put out a fire, receiving a medal for Heroism as a Firefighter on March 8th, for International Women’s Day.

hell ya!
