Hear Every Voice: NYC and the National Park Service, documentary by Stephen Ogumah was created in summer of 2009.

“What shall we do with our girls” is a personal narrative that tells a little of the journey that emerged as a result of uncovering “The Amazons” and subsequent images. The photographs were generative of other creative works. As a result of the photographs, I collaborated with costumier Gracie Matthews to reproduce the operational and dress uniforms of The Amazons. These were then paraded by contemporary female fire fighters as part of my key note address to the Australasian Women in Fire Fighting Conference, Sydney Australia, June 2006.
On behalf of the IVSA, I would like to thank everyone who stood for a position in our recent elections to the IVSA Board. Although not everyone could be successful, we very much appreciate the commitment that members have shown towards the work of the IVSA. We also want to thank all our members who took the time to vote.
