This is an incredible story coming out of Egypt. A woman has just recently received an award by the president of Egypt for having dressed as a man for over 40 years. In the 70s when her husband passed away and she was pregnant with her child, she began to dress as a man. She did this in order to be able to get the higher paying jobs that she would not be able to get as a woman. [googlead] She did everything from brick laying, to construction to show polishing. When asked why she did this, she said it was the only way to be able to provide for her children. Watch this amazing video.
Wow, what an incredible woman. I can’t imagine all the sacrifices she made for her children.
