There’s no need to go into detail about the plight of the Egyptian woman – you can see the habitual disenfranchisement of women in Om El Donya from space – but there is hope. More and more initiatives aiming to empower women are coming into their own, one of the newest being Power of Pink which is preparing for its debut event as we speak.
Said event is Rise of Her; taking place on Saturday 6th of February at the Greater Cairo Library in Zamalek, the event is built on the sentiment of “bringing her for her.” Starting at 11AM, the all-day affair is essentially a meeting of minds, with some of the most influential and successful Egyptian female icons, role models and speakers set to attend and share their considerable wisdom and expertise, from a wide range of backgrounds, careers and industries.
Among the figures set to deliver workshops, activities and talks are founder of PROPS Photography, Reham Higazy, and fashion blogger, Fatma El Demerdash, with the planned workshops also covering a range of skills and pursuits – everything from photography, food-styling and make-up, to event planning, media & PR and life-coaching.
Though other details are scarce as of now, Rise of Her is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of its kind – stay tuned for more info on the Power of Pink Facebook page. You can register for your ticket here or call 01022944074 / 01008444022 for more information.
