Access to the Fire & Emergency Service for women

The High Commissioner received a complaint from a young woman who had been denied the possibility of applying to join the Fire & Emergency Service on the grounds of her sex. In response to this complaint, the High Commissioner recommended an end to the discriminatory practice of allowing only men to join this Service, and called for the necessary steps to be taken immediately to ensure that women are admitted to roles at the fire station.

The entire recommendation is available on the site in french version only.
