HOMS, June 5, 2019 - Female electrical workers fix electrical transformers in Homs province, central Syria on May 30, 2019. As the war in Syria rumbled on, Syrian women started to engage in more jobs than regular office work and raising children, as large numbers of men had joined the army or left the country to seek refuge. The jobs that women in the country are increasingly doing include repairing cars, driving buses or taxis, and more interestingly, using a crane to reach the high-voltage power lines and fix them, despite all challenges such as family's opposition and fear of heights.
