All-female train crew derails sexist attitudes

AFP, JAIPUR, India

There is also talk of a creche, still a rarity in India, so women can bring their children to work.

Saumya Mathur, the head of Jaipur’s railway division and a mother of two, said she hoped young girls passing through the station would take note of those in charge and “start believing in themselves.”

“Just a little push is needed to make a girl feel that she can do what she wishes to do. She can dream of doing things which earlier she would not have dreamed of,” Mathur said.
