My wife pointed out this article she found in her "Glamour" magazine. This is an exact quote from the magizine.
Women in Iran are Discouraged from showing even their wrists and can be stoned for adultery, but thanks to a group of female pioneers, the government will let them fight fires. An 11-member, all woman team of firefighters in the town of Karaj is the only squad of its kind in the Middle East, and its members revel in their freedom. "When we rescue a child and the mother comes to thank us, we feel so good," Mahboubeh Khoshsolat told The Christian Science Monitor. Thankfully, the head scarves they wear under their helmets are fire-retardant.
