Hello, I'm 18 and looking to join up soon. I've wanted to join for a long time, but recently my friends brother, who is in the forces, has been telling me stuff about things that happened to women in training and i'm a bit worried. I don't know if hes winding me up. I know it will be difficult in training but i'm still worried about the things hes telling me about the way women are treated alongside the men. Aren't women seperate to men in training? This is a genuine post. I've been reading stuff on here for a couple of weeks and have noticed if someone new and young asks a question its sometimes treated as a wind up, but i am genuinley worried about how i'll be treated. Really do want to join. Thanks, Maddy.
