5 cool women of the Maldives

When we think about inspirational women, we tend to focus on those women who we know, those we’ve heard speak at an event, or those that we’ve read about in our own language.  We tend to forget the stories of those women who don’t talk our language.  Well my good friend Bruce has sent me this link to a YouTube video about five amazing women who live and work in the Maldives.

They don’t speak English – fortunately there are subtitles to the video.  Listen to the taxi driver who has been running a taxi service for 5 years, the Imaam who runs the female only mosque and listen to the artist, who painted something that represented women for her.

Inspiring stuff and well worth listening to…
