Meet Gaza's first woman taxi driver

Meet Gaza's first female taxi driver

Mother-of-five Naela Abu Jibba

has become a target of sexist jibes

about her abilities behind the wheel

but it is her all-female clientele

that keeps her "Al-Mukhtara" taxi company going

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) PALESTINIAN OWNER OF AL-MUKHTARA TAXI SERVICE, NAELA ABU JIBBA, SAYING:

"My dream is to have a fleet of vehicles along the roadside for Al-Mukhtara taxi for ladies."

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) AL-MUKHTARA CLIENT, SOUSAN ABU ATEILA, SAYING:"It is a nice and a new idea. We wish we had something like this a long time ago. We feel more comfortable."
