Description

From Britain's first black policewoman Sislin Fay Allen in the 1960s to the recent appointment of the Royal Navy's first female admiral, women on the frontline have continued to prove they can - not only do what used to be traditionally male roles - but also rise through the ranks.

On the Sky News Daily podcast, as part of a special series throughout the summer, Dermot Murnaghan is joined by Josephine Reynolds, Britain's first full-time female firefighter and Colonel Lucy Giles, the first female college commander at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, as we find out how many women are now in accessible combat roles.
