Education is the most important instrument for human resource development. Our project aims to highlight the importance of gender equality by raising awareness of women who have been relevant figures in the history of our countries in areas as diverse as arts, politics, science, sports, literature, entertainment, etc. Education is the most important instrument for human resource development. There is a saying that when you educate a woman you educate a nation. Women are the key to sustainable development and quality of life. So they should be members of community centers or clubs to disseminate knowledge about sports, art, literature, politics, science, etc. to society. Moreover, it is the women who have sustained the growth of society and sculpted the future of nations. Women are essential to many industries in the complicated social environment that is currently growing. They are becoming more than just peacemakers; they are becoming a source of strength and a representation of advancement.


Living in the modern age has made people more open-minded and accepting and they are embracing differences more than ever before. Younger generations have especially gone a long way to change tradition, embrace equality, and eliminate many stereotypes.

As beautiful as this is, there are still many industries and careers that are male-dominated. Industries such as science, engineering, construction, and technology offer higher entry-level wages but are also the ones in which females are extremely underrepresented.

Due to various factors, many female individuals have never dreamed of pursuing a career that is not a traditional one. These factors might include never being encouraged to explore a more non-traditional occupation, the gender gap, and the glass ceiling.

For those who are unfamiliar with the terminology, the term the glass ceiling is used to describe the unreachable barrier that prevents women from advancing in their careers and climbing up the corporate ladder no matter their achievements and qualifications. The gender gap refers to the inequality of income between males and females who have the same jobs and qualifications.

Luckily, times are changing, now more than ever, and a growing number of women are venturing into non-traditional industries in search of higher-paying jobs and better opportunities. If you are unsure what it means, non-traditional female occupations are ones where about ¾ of industry professionals are male.

Marina  Artero is a very famous and good football player from Barrika, she studies at Azkorri school. She travels a lot so it has been so difficult for us to get her to our class. However, she has answered some questions:


  • Is it difficult to cope with the team and the school?
  • It is not easy but I think that if you organise yourself well and you really want to do it, you can. Even if I have to travel a lot when there are international competitions, apart from playing in my local team, teachers at school really make it easy for me. They change the exams dates for me and explain me what I don’t understand when I am back at school.
  • You are a great example for all of us.  Do you think women football deserves the same attention as men’s one?
  • I don’t think I am an example, that would mean that women playing football are special and it shouldn’t be like that. My team has shown that we have great women playing football, in some occasions our team has achieved better results that men’s team. However it is tr ue that professional football players, if men, have a better life and more opportunities.

isn’t as capable as a man!

An interview with a tram driver – by Agata Pikul – Trzecie Liceum Ogólnokształcące of Adam Mickieiwcz, in Bydgoszcz, Poland




Because of job gender assignment women are often underaged in their
profession, and that’s why some of you’d be curious about the perspective of a
woman doing such a job. And my aunt is a firewoman so I decided to ask her a
few questions related to this issue.
First I asked her if it had been hard to get that job. And she responded that it
hadn’t been easy to get that job and she needed to have a certain aptitude to
do that profession. She said that firefighters should be in good physical
condition and meet psychological requirements. She had to pass a physical
fitness test and got a doctor’s recommendation that she could work in the fire
department. Then I asked her why she’d chosen that job, and she said that her
dream had been to work in the uniform service, and at first she was thinking
about joining the army but her plans changed. Then she chose to study at the
main school of fire service. I also wanted to know how many women do that
job. And she answered that over 29,000 men do that job and just over 1.2
a thousand women, which made up this is about 4%. She told me that she had
been working at a school where she trains cadets to become firefighters. She
added that several women are working with her but in different positions, and
she’s the only female firefighting instructor. Finally, I asked her if people were
surprised that she was a firefighter. And I got to know that people are astonished
because they associated this occupation with well-built men, and she’s a petite
woman. But thankfully it’s not appearance those counts, but what she does.
Those were all of my questions, I’m glad that my aunt agreed to do this little
interview. People should be aware that firewomen exist.



We had an interview with a woman driver instructor with my students.



My students brainstormed as a group and write the questions that they are curious about most. After that Mehlika made the interview with the driver instructor.


  • What is your name?


My name is Semin Duban .


  • How many years have you been a driver instructor?


I have been doing this job for about 12 years.


  • How did you decide to take up this profession?


I love driving a lot, so I thought I could do this field, so I decided to try it. When I started doing this job, I enjoyed it and continued on my way.


  • Are there any difficult aspects of driving instructor training? If so, what are they?


There is definitely. For example, in one of my trainings, the car broke down while on the road. In such a situation, men’s reflexes are better. After all, you’re stuck with a broken down car in the middle of the road and need to make a quick decision. In this respect, the work of women is a little more difficult.


  • Did you come across an interesting incident while teaching?


Of course. For example, I have given 12 truck licenses. In this case, being on the track even during the park is an interesting experience for a woman.


  • Are the numbers of men and women close to each other when they are driving instructors?


It’s definitely not close. If we set a ratio, I can say 5 men to 1 woman.


  • Considering that almost all of the truck and truck drivers are male, how does it feel to train them?


It’s a really tough feeling. First, they need to respect you and they need to believe in you. They are very surprised anyway. They say that if we fall, you cannot lift it, especially while giving motorcycle driving training.


  • What is your favorite part of this job?


My favorite part is that it’s interesting and it’s a really nice feeling to have succeeded.


  • Why do you think women prefer driving instructors less?


I think it is known as an area where male dominance is high. Therefore, it may be less preferred.


  • What should be done to see more women in different occupational groups?


I think first of all, women need to trust themselves, for this, women need to attach great importance to their own education.




My project team members Hasibe and Zeynep interviewed with a succesful  woman  truck driver ,Filiz İnce.Filiz İnce, who is a long-distance and truck driver , said, “There is nothing that women cannot do, as long as we ask for it.”
Indicating that he decided to start this job in spite of those who say, “Can a woman be a long-distance driver?” Ince said, “My aim in being a truck driver is to show that it is possible to go beyond the duties labeled by men to women. I am a truck driver to let you know that the job is not the gender, but the morality and order,” and explained how he started his long-distance driver career.
İnce said, “The reason why I took to the roads was my enthusiasm for trucks and driving since I was a child.”
Stating that she first started working as a bus captain in Mersin Metropolitan Municipality, Filiz İnce said, “When I started working as a bus captain in Mersin Metropolitan Municipality, I got a lot of reactions. I have always encountered not only backlash but also the support of women. Those who pressed me not to interfere with men’s business with the dough of their hands made me gather my courage. So I decided to move my business between cities. I started as a long distance driver in a private company. After my other driver friends said that you have no job at the wheel, I left after having an argument. After the discussion, I decided to get on the truck,” he said.

Early Beginnings and Education: Born in Venezuela to Hungarian parents in 1948, her family immigrated to Venezuela from post-war Europe. Growing up in Venezuela, she pursued a career in engineering.


-What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time? Answer: “In my free time, I love traveling. It allows me to explore new cultures, connect with different people, and gain fresh perspectives.”


-Did you like working as an electrical engineer? Answer: “Absolutely! I enjoyed the challenges and the opportunity. However, I later discovered my true passion when I transitioned into the role of an oil market analyst.”


Venturing Abroad: She wanted to get a Master’s degree, so she applied and received a scholarship to study in Los Angeles.


-If you hadn’t been an engineer, what would you have done for a living? Answer: “It’s hard to say for sure, but I’ve always been fascinated by the world of finance and economics. I may have ventured into the realm of finance or become an economist.”


Challenges and Opportunities in the USA: She made a daring move to the United States, guided by her father’s wisdom that taking risks paves the way for a better future. With her young son in tow, she embarked on a new chapter, driven by her unwavering determination and expertise in the field. Although faced with initial uncertainty, her undeniable talent and a fortuitous encounter with a former boss opened doors to an opportunity in New York City as an oil market analyst.


-Did you find moving to the USA hard? Answer: “Moving to the USA was certainly a challenge. However, as my father told me many times, you have to be willing to take risks if you want a better future for the next generations.”


-Do you believe in gender equality? Answer: “Absolutely. It may surprise you, but even though Latin America is viewed as a region where there is a lot of machismo, men and women had the same professional opportunities. Engineers, doctors, lawyers, professors, the country needed as many as possible, so it was easy to find a job, both for women and for men, and we received the same salary as the men.”


-Did you experience gender inequality in the USA? Answer: ” I was very surprised to see that in the US, men and women were not treated equally. A woman’s salary in general was lower than a man’s salary doing the same job, although I think that has improved a lot in the last couple of years.”


She experienced difficulties in her career, including losing jobs and dealing with uncertainty. But she never gave up. She took risks, and kept learning, which helped her grow both personally and professionally.


Looking to the future, she sees the next decade as a time for continued growth. With her knowledge, connections, and passion for making a difference, she aims to create a better future for herself and others.
