The Only Female Cab Driver in Palestine… (Full article at world.mic)

Nadia Ahmad is doing something that no other Palestinian woman has done before – be a cab driver. And I, for one, am proud of her courage.

Of course, she faced some pretty serious obstacles…from groups of male cab drivers and the media and her community. People are so afraid of change, and that fear can really bring out the worst in some. She received disturbing threats and hateful accusations, but because of her determination and commitment, as well as her husband’s support (go husband!!), she didn’t give up and has become a true activist and role model for women.

Nadia Ahmad has a vision – an all female cab driver fleet in Palestine. How cool is that?!

Please share your thoughts. Looking forward to your comments!!
