'Girls Can Do Anything': Cincinnati Female Firefighters Offer Empowering Video Story Time

Women of the Cincinnati Fire Department posted an empowering story-time video for students in Ohio and elsewhere to enjoy while distance-learning amid COVID-19 control measures.

The Cincinnati Fire Department shared this footage on April 6 of female firefighters reading the book Girls Can Do Anything by Caryl Hart. The department said the video was made after 10-year-old Madison and 4-year-old Mya wrote to the department, asking to meet some of their women firefighters.

“Since we had to suspend our preschool reading program with Cincinnati Public Schools, we thought this was a great opportunity for our female firefighters to read to all of our school age friends while they’re safe at home!” the Cincinnati Fire Department said on Facebook.
