Quoting Deli_kizin:

That's all nice and well, but I'm ashamed to say that such a progressive country as the Netherlands, has never had a female prime minister We may have a queen, but that is just a formality, so no woman has ever had the political power.


I wonder if the progressive country of Netherlands will ever allow a white man to be the queen!!! I doubt they will!

"Progressive" may mean many different things, in general I consider it progressive when a person is breaking the accepted norms in order to better themselves or their communities. This woman, Dr Sameera Moussa, is absolutely very progressive and brilliant, being so accomplished in nuclear physics as a Muslim woman. She must have gone against lots of social pressure to pursue her dreams and talents.

"In England, she pursued her studies, devoting her efforts to make available the full peaceful use of the atom in combating cancer especially after her mother went through a fierce battle against cancer. Throughout her intensive research, she came up with a historic equation that would help break the atoms of cheap metals such as copper, paving the way for a nuclear bomb almost for free. "

This unusual iranian bus driver woman in Tehran represents an example of a progressive woman as well. Even in such opression in Iran, we can still meet courageous women. She even fights with other men like any other bus driver.
I think Iran sooner or later will change.

Definitely a progressive, courageous woman. Isn´t it sad that in Iran you have to be a courageous woman to be a bus driver?
