Molly es una niña escocesa de 4 años que tiene una ilusión: cuando sea mayor, quiere conducir un camión de bomberos. La pequeña le contó a su madre, Rebecca, que nunca había visto a una mujer conducir un vehículo de extinción de incendios. Con la intención de demostrarle a su hija que también hay chicas bomberas, Rebecca hizo un llamamiento en Twitter para encontrar ejemplos de mujeres dedicadas a esta profesión. Y las respuestas no se hicieron esperar.
De la misma Escocia, de Inglaterra, de Gales, de Suecia, de Canadá, de Nueva York, de Australia, de Japón... decenas de mujeres bomberas se animaron a compartir sus fotos con sus uniformes y todas animaron a la pequeña a perseguir sus sueños.

Request from Molly age 4.
When she grows up she wants to drive a fire truck but she said she has never seen a lady drive a fire truck before.
