Gaza's only fisherwoman

A young girl has taken over the family's fishing boat in a male-dominated industry.

    In Gaza, traditional industries like fishing are dominated by men but one 16-year-old girl is changing that.

    She has taken charge of her father's fishing boat and the family's livelihood after he suffered an injury to his leg.
