Zahida Kazmi 57, a widow and mother of seven children, drives a taxi in Rawalpindi 
Zahida Kazmi, 57, a widow and mother of seven children, drives a taxi on International Women's Day in Rawalpindi March 8, 2015. Kazmi, who has been making a living as a taxi driver for the past 37 years, single-handedly brought up her children after her first and second husbands passed away. Today, all her older children are married and she lives with her youngest, 13-year-old daughter. She continues to drive some 10 hours a day and earns about 1,000-1,500 Pakistani Rupee ($10-$15). Kazmi describes her job as "an adventure in a male-dominated world", but a necessity to feed herself and her children. On March 8 activists around the globe celebrate International Women's Day, which dates back to the beginning of the 20th Century and has been observed by the United Nations since 1975.
