Just Imagine

by Dr. Mohandes on

Under the previous system of Government having a fe male pilot was a given not a feat or even an accomplishment. It was not a priviledge. Any female would have been able to try her chances and become one.

The "SYSTEM" was set and designed to allow for female participation in all forms and shapes and in whatever capacity possible.

Now we have two problems for takeoff........spare parts, and pilot's mood swing. Period.

Just kidding.........With best wishes for her and the system which allows her social participation..............

And hopefully it won't result in women-only flights............


More power to her and all other Iranian women..
