Feminin - Masculin - IRAN

About: Check out this documentary video! "In the male dominated society of Iran, Farahnaz Shiri, the first female bus driver in Tehran, has made her own little society in her bus. In Iran there are different sections for men and women on public buses. Women should enter buses from the back door, which is separated from men’s entrance, and should sit or stay in a limited zone at the end of the buses which is separated from men’s zone. But in Mrs. Shiri’s bus everything is vice-versa. She is the governor and the only law maker of her own little society" this is what the original blurb about this short film says. I think this is a pretty amazing story of a person who is so strong to go up against all odds and do their own thing. It is also about fighting discrimination head on. I found this on the Why Democracy website. A LOT of good videos there! http://www.whydemocracy.net/film/14
