Intern’l Women’s Day: Portrait of a Japanese female taxi driver

Ahead of International Women’s Day, AFPTV is showcasing a series of portraits of women working in male-dominated occupations. Less than 2 percent of Tokyo taxi drivers are female, Kano Ato is one of them. The 24-year-old said it is hard to find a fellow female companion in her line of work but added the lack of a salary gap pushes her to work harder.
