Iran's Female Fire Fighters

Well, we saw female soccer players before, and now there you can see Iranian female fire fighters working while wearing the mandatory hijab:


Pictures can be seen on state-run Mehr News Agency web site: mehr news1 & mehr news2 & mehr news3

Interesting, isn't it?

Bet it's hot under there.
So, do they actually get paychecks? Or like so many others, just the promise of a paycheck?

It is interesting to see Iranian women working at traditionally male jobs. Many people in Iran must be okay with this or it wouldn't happen, but it seems strange that those same people have Ahmadjinehad as their leader - it doesn't make any sense!

سلام وينستون جان

!ممنون از تمامی لينکهائی که معرفی کرده بودی
با ويدئوهای آقای مانی ترک زاده کما بيش آشنائی دارم ولی آن لينکی که در ياهو (بلا دور) 360 معرفی کرده بودی... از خنده روده بر شدم ! فکر کنم تا حالا اينقدر نخنديده بودم

Dear Winston, with best wishes,
Those Picturesque are only for new game which is proclimed by Mr. A.N. in conjunction for women rights in IRI.
On friday he said: Women in Iran are under attack because of their gender?!
blah blah blah ...
I am sorry for Iranian wemen with such a defender!
It is not strange. because it's a new propagande and new game.

Stephen - That's a classic. I saw it over a year ago, and still get a chuckle.
