One day, I saw my father depressed being teased for not having a son boy. In Muslim societies, a family that doesn’t have a boy, is a family that would discontinue, it is like being in lack of honor. “I went to my father and I asked him: why everyone is asking you where is your son?. Why our community does not prefer girls?”. “He answered: because our community believes that boys bring honor and preserves the family name. I replied: do not worry dad, I will bring you honor and preserve your name.” Sine that day, and I decided to go for everything challenging that our community keeps for man-gender only.
I know women had double responsibility than men; I care for all housewife and mother practices, yet keep my eye on recognition and honor.
And after many years of hard work, I get a lots of positions and recognations such as; head of electrical engineering department- Benha university, the department which contains about 60 staff, most them men, The first science and technology advisors for Benha university, also named as ideal mother at 2009, Benha University, The vice president of Arab science and technology foundation ASTF, in 2014 I ranked as the first leading lady in the list of 50 most prominent leader of the Arab woman in 2014 issued by the Sayidaty magazine, also named by Arabian Business magazine as “one of Top World’s 100 Most Powerful Arab Women for the year”.
