Woemn coal miners Sakiba Colic, left, and Semsa Hadzo, right, Bosnian coal 

Woemn coal miners Sakiba Colic, left, and Semsa Hadzo, right, Bosnian coal technologists, are checking air flow and temperature at 450 meters underground in the shaft of 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)
