Semsa Hadzo, a Bosnian coal technologist, speaks on the phone while waiting to begin her 8-hour shift at 450 meters underground in the coal mine in Breza, 20 kms north of Sarajevo, Bosnia, on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013. The mine in Breza is the only one in Bosnia where a group of women work deep underground in the coal mines alongside their male colleagues, a legacy of communism, but they're set to retire in three years, marking the end of an era for this community where almost everybody is connected to the coal mine. The shafts and elevators echo with laughter and tales of their grandchildren as women miners work alongside their male counterparts.(AP Photo/Amel Emric)
