“EMBRACE YOUR POWER” Go for the success you deserve in life, work & love.
IDENTITY MAGAZINE MARCH 2015 FASHION SHOOT
Egyptian women are starting to break the stereotypes, like models are attention seekers, producers and “Sogo2” stands are men’s work, women are starting to have jobs that aren’t only for women, it’s for everybody. And people who think women normally have to work harder than men, especially in the countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, these women prove that this stereotype is no longer in our lives, and here they are.
Egyptian women are slowly but surely thrashing the stereotypical norms and traditions of our society; what used to be male dominant fields are now being more and more penetrated by female colleagues. Women have ventured in diverse debateable careers; they are now music producers, street vendors, investment bankers, interior and fashion designers. In many parts of the world, women work equally hard and provide financially for the household just like their male counterparts. It’s particularly challenging for them when they have to find the ‘right’ balance between work and family life.
