Serpil Cigdem, 44, an engine driver, poses for a photograph at Yenikapi station in Istanbul, Turkey, February 24, 2017. "When I applied for a job 23 years ago as an engine driver, I was told that it is a profession for men. I knew that during the written examination even if I got the same results with a male candidate, he would have been chosen. ThatÕs why I worked hard to pass the exam with a very good result ahead of the male candidates. In my opinion, gender inequality starts in our minds saying itÕs a male profession or itÕs a men job," said Cigdem. REUTERS/Osman Orsal SEARCH "WOMEN WORK" FOR THIS STORY.
