  • Description

    In Cairo, women college students are directing traffic during their summer holidays.

    Previously, the job was done by male students, but the girls said they could do it just as well and now several can be seen directing traffic in the main streets of the Egyptian capital.

    SYNOPSIS: Drivers in the busy streets of Cairo are now taking directions from women. Several girls have been given the job during their summer college vacation.

    The girls wear white socks and short skirts to keep cool in the summer heat.

    At times the temperature reaches forty degrees Centigrade.

    College students have been used for some time to control traffic during their summer holidays. Previously male students had been used for the job, but the girls argued that they could direct traffic just as well and Cairo cit authorities decided to give them the chance.

    The girls have brought feminine grace to the task of keeping the traffic running smoothly.
