Palestinian mother-of-five Nayla Abu Jubbah launched a small revolution this week by becoming the first female taxi driver in the deeply conservative Gaza Strip.

Everyone’s goal I think should be that, instead of highlighting things because of the fact that I’m a woman, highlight things by the fact that we are people with big dreams, but that can be fulfilled "
