Meet Gaza's first woman taxi driver

The first female Palestinian taxi driver in the Gaza Strip, Nayla Abu Jubbah, 39, sits at her vehicle as she works in Gaza City on November 17, 2020. Jubbah launched a small revolution this week by becoming the first female taxi driver in the deeply conservative Gaza Strip. In the coastal Palestinian territory women have the same legal rights as men to drive a vehicle, but in practice the trade of taxi driver has been exclusively male -- until now / AFP / MAHMUD HAMS
