Female Firefighters in Iran

Iran has something that is unique for the Middle East: the only all-female firefighter squad.

From The Christian Science Monitor:

“Not every rescue requires a feminine touch. But in the Islamic Republic, which tolerates little public mixing of the genders, the 11 women here are breaking new ground and creating a model for cities across the country. They also represent a strain of pragmatic progressivism in Iran that is rarely matched elsewhere in the region.”
