Iran bans female 'Schumacher'
Not a screenshot
Iranian women are exploring new boundaries and opportunities in education and careers - not least female racing car champion Laleh Seddigh - until that is she was banned from competitions following allegations of engine tampering.
Laleh's story is a symbol of what women can achieve in today's Iran.
But her desire to prove she could compete with men at every level ended up costing her dearly.
The 31-year-old sportswoman, nicknamed "Little Schumacher" is a minor celebrity in her native country.
She has also become a poster girl for Iranian women seeking to better their lot.
"I love to race, I love to compete... I think it's sort of a responsibility for me because I am inviting other female drivers to join to the race... and hopefully I can teach to the other females to just believe in themselves," she says. "Persian females are really strong."
Laleh first learned to drive as a child, sometimes borrowing her father's car late at night for clandestine road trips - and later speeding through Tehran's notorious and lethal traffic on the way to university.
