Meet Pakistan's first female fire fighter
4 October 2015 Last updated at 00:02 BST

A young woman is breaking taboos in Pakistan by being the country's only female fire fighter.

It is a highly unusual job in a conservative country where millions of women still struggle for basic rights like health care and education - at least three million girls are not in school and, in many rural and remote areas, child marriage is still prevalent.

Twenty-five-year old Shazia Parveen, who lives in a small village in South Punjab, wanted to prove that women can work alongside men regardless of how challenging the job is.
