With every turn of a wrench, Jordanian woman breaks barriers

In this Monday, March 21, 2016 photo, Jordanian plumber Maryam Mutlaq, 41, poses for a picture at a school in Zarqa, northeast of Amman. Mutlaq’s choice of career is rare for the Arab world where traditional gender roles make men the main breadwinners and confine most women to certain jobs _ teachers, nurses, low-level government clerks. Five years ago, the Arab Spring brought the hope of more opportunities for women. Yet that promise has not panned out, analysts and activists say, and in some cases spreading violence has even led to a backlash. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)
