A woman in Egypt has been dressing as a man for 42 years in order to earn money for her family.  Sesa Abou Douh's husband died while she was pregnant. Where Sesa lives in rural Upper Egypt, traditional gender roles meant it was easier for her to find work as a man.
She recently received an award for her dedication to her family.
Now 64 and still shining shoes, Sesa Abou Douh told BBC News about how she disguised herself to make ends meet.

Floyd Mayweather emerged victorious from the most lucrative fight in history, beating Manny Pacquiao via a wide unanimous decision in Las Vegas.
American Mayweather, 38, delivered a defensive masterclass against his Philippine rival, making the necessary adjustments after only a few rounds before disappearing out of sight.
Mayweather, who added the WBO welterweight title to the WBC and WBA titles he already owned, was awarded the fight 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112 by the three judges.

So Egypt's answer to Jon Stewart took over BBC News ... just for few minutes. Why, you ask? Well, Bassem Youssef wanted to share his unique guide to the Middle East because he believes that 'news outlets have failed miserably' to deal with the topic.
Oh, and find out why number 42 is so important to him.

The richest fight in the history of boxing takes place on Saturday in Las Vegas. The unbeaten American Floyd #Mayweather meets Manny #Pacquiao from the Philippines Tickets are on sale on online marketplaces for $351,000 (£230,000). But if you didn't manage to get a ticket there's always this, rather luxury accommodation. The only issue may be the price tag.

+Chad Wagner it's not just money it's planting a seed and promoting an ideal. Not everyone will want to follow that path but a trickle eventually becomes a flood. The idea that hard work, perseverance can achieve seems lost again to the get rich quick brigade. It's either music, sports or crime. And those ideals are powerfully pervasive in typically one place. The good old USA.
