Women take up top jobs in Arabia!

The government of Arabia is trying to emancipate women particularly in the field of education. Thus, about twenty-seven women have been selected for top positions in the department of higher education. Some five women were previously appointed as deans who were working with the Ministry of Education before these twenty-seven women were chosen. According to the article, “The ministry has launched a campaign to provide employment to 200,000 women and appointed 30 women officials at its offices in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Dammam. The ministry’s offices are currently receiving applications from women job seekers.”
In addition, women are being trained for positions like cashier, retail seller, and receptionist. The training is provided by the General Organization for Technical Education and Vocational Training. It is the first time that such type of training is being offered to the women of Arabia. It is expected that Rakisa Holding, the lead developer of Prince Abdul Aziz ibn Musaed Economic City in Hail would create around 600 jobs for women in the current year.
I’m sure that this program must have fascinated many women who want to go ahead in life and prove themselves. I think that this is great because it would encourage Arabian women to go out and see what is going on in the world today. It will give them confidence and they will be able to create a better picture of Muslim women in the world by going forward in education. This would be influential in inspiring the women of Arabia. Besides this, it would also assist in providing jobs to the women who are without a job.§ion=0&article=90630&d=5&m=1&y=2007
