May is a Lebanese Muslim woman, who have been working since 23 years. She has also been in charge of her family of six children, in light of her husband's continuous travel in the past nine years.
Though many societies are still using religion to justify women's exclusion from the society, May's story is a typical example of the life of Muslim women in Lebanon.
