(24 Mar 2017) LEADIN:A female bus driver is challenging what is deemed an unacceptable job for a woman in Gaza.STORYLINE:Every morning, 41-year-old Salwa Srour prepares her red Volkswagen minibus before picking up her first passengers.Unbothered by the attention she receives, Srour begins to negotiate the streets of Gaza City, collecting kindergarten children as she goes.But hers is not a common job for a woman in the region."I did not achieve this without a price," Srour admits."The woman must carve into the rock to get her rights."In Gaza's conservative society, there are few professions deemed acceptable for women - and many work in primary education.But while some may not agree with Srour's choice of work, others feel more comfortable entrusting their children's safety to a female driver."It's more assuring than a man because the woman takes care of the children more than the men when she takes them to and from the kindergarten," says Rami Al Waheidi whose daughter is a passenger of Srour.The kindergarten is owned by Srour's sister who had received several complaints from families about the previous male drivers. Having a driving license but no job, Srour offered to help her sister as a driver.One of the teachers, Ahlam Hamo, said she is proud of Srour and hopes that more women will continue to try different, traditionally-male professions.As well as driving them to school, Srour also assists in the classroom before getting back in the minibus and transporting the children home safely.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
