Most women in religious conservative Iran dress in the traditional burqa, and generally speaking occupy roles that were assigned to them hundreds of years ago. But the female police officers who began training in 2003, display some real bad-ass skills. This is the first crop of female cadets since the 1970's when the Islamic revolution did away with women officers. The video shows these women dressed in the traditional burqas adroitly rappelling down a wall, firing AK47 rifles from speeding cars and more. It is really impressive.
