This is discriminatory:
"denying them training opportunities"

This is bullshit: it's 2017, no? if we're going to fight for equality then this is nonsense.

failing to keep male firefighters from walking around firehouses wearing bathrobes or just their underwear; not providing areas in firehouses for women to dress privately; and more.

I hope she succeeds - Didn't Healy's nephew or son get a job with them but failed the psychological test, but was pushed through with political influence ... It wouldn't be good if the same guy was stationed with this woman and also the cause / contributed to her justifiable complaint.

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council next week is scheduled to approve a $50,000 settlement for a female firefighter who sued in federal court alleging widespread gender bias in the fire department.

Constance Zappella, the city's first woman fire captain, accused the city and several high-ranking fire officials of limiting promotions of women by denying them training opportunities; failing to keep male firefighters from walking around firehouses wearing bathrobes or just their underwear; not providing areas in firehouses for women to dress privately; and more.
