Never met a female cabbie in NYC before? Neither had filmmaker Diana Diroy before she started her short documentary ‘What’s A Girl Doing Here?’. This is no surprise, since out of the 46,000 cab drivers working in NYC, only 170 are female. 'What's A Girl Doing Here?', follows the story of two female cabbies in the NYC area juggling their strenuous jobs and their every day lives. Read More
