    Pretty vulnerable job for anyone especially a female. Had one female taxi driver my entire life, she loved it

    One of those jobs which women simply don't want to take. They complain only when it comes to inequality in city law firms and investment banks, but they don't care about men doing all the work in rescue services, building services and other jobs that aren't glamorous enough.

    I was watching this documentary about taxi drivers online. Almost all of them were female taxi drivers. Mind you it all got a bit kinky after the initial intro.

    Not even that, I've been intrigued by how women work in these very typically male working environments, unfortunately I've CU.M away with more questions than answers.

    I have a sneaky suspicion some of the documentary was scripted.

    Women are smart enough not to work for a company that treats its employees like trash.
