Halaet Wasl Foundation for promoting cultural awareness held the conference “I am an Egyptian woman,” last Friday, to support successful examples of Egyptian women, honouring 100 women in various fields including health, science, media, society, culture, charity, sports, and others.
Fathi Al-Muzayen, chairperson of Halaet Wasl’s board of trustees said the conference comes out of the foundation’s strong belief in the pivotal role played by Egyptian women in public life, and their great gains after the 30 June Revolution.
He added that it is necessary to shed light on the various successful stories of Egyptian women.
Al-Muzayen added that women now have the highest presence ever in the history of the Egyptian parliament and cabinet.
He assured that President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi is always keen to resolve all the problems faced by Egyptian women in various sectors.
