From the back cover:

If you have ever imagined what it would be like to be the only woman working and sleeping in a totally male environment then let Anne Barry take you on her journey. As the first woman in Australasia to fight for and win the right to have the career she wanted, Anne faced many hurdles to become a professional firefighter. Her case went all the way to the Equal Opportunities Commission, to the Human Rights Commission and even to Members of Parliament over a period of almost two years before she was finally accepted for the recruitment course in 1981 which she passed with flying colours. She went on to have a distinguished career in the Fire Service for more than 20 years. Anne's writing is vivid and engaging while racy and laced with humour.
