In a new turn of events….many of the women in Lebanon, Dubail, and int he city of Arbil are standing up against the patriarchy that is trying to over power them.
Many of the modern taxis refuse to pick up women….a new comment on the war on women, but it is not new for this region.
So…women such as Lana Khoshabaan has recently started an all-women taxi firm.This is not only helping women get from one place to another, but also protecting women from verbal, sexual, and physical assaults by taxi drivers and men in general.
This is yet another example of people who have seen problems and situations in their day to day life that can be corrected. That can be reinvented. Indecencies that have the ability to not only be overcome, but changed.
Not only have they become business owners, they have also become role models. They are showing the women of their cities and towns that there is more that women can do than lay down tot eh abusive patriarchy. What a great lesson for all girls and women to hear!
These women are changing the world for the positive…
What could you do right now to change your world…no matter how small?
