MANİSA - Doğan News Agency
DHA photoFatma Güngör, who became the only female bus driver in the Aegean province of Manisa some two months ago after she divorced her husband, has called on other women to earn their living and not be afraid.
“I thought I could not make it at the beginning. Fortunately this feeling has gone away… I now feel that I have been reborn after starting to work,” she said, adding that she had never worked before.
“I am very happy with other people’s reactions to me. Some of them even shake hands when I am driving and voice their support to me… I call for any woman who wants to work to do this job. As women, we can do any job we want,” added Güngör.
Executives from MANULAŞ invited other women to work for them as bus drivers.
