CHP shares video honoring women officers for International Women's Day
CALIFORNIA (FOX26) —
In honor of International Women's Day, the California Highway Patrol shared a video honoring the women who helped pave the way for women to become CHP officers.
Before 1974, if a woman wanted to work for CHP, regulations said they could only work in non-officer jobs.
Throughout the video, you can see how the voices of a few people rose a generation of change.
"To all of the remarkable women who have paved the way in our Department, thank you for your strength, commitment, and perseverance. Thank you for writing the next chapter. Happy International Women’s Day!" CHP said on Facebook.
