Egypt’s First Lady Entisar al-Sisi said that she was pleased to attend the Egyptian Women’s Day ceremony held on Saturday to honor women and ideal mothers, adding that she could see models for Egypt’s “great” ladies.
“I found the wonderful mother, the faithful teacher and the outstanding doctor …” the first lady said in a Facebook post, adding that she saw ladies who “have preserved the values, principles and ethics that resemble our country in originality and heritage.”
“I would like to thank every woman who continues to do everything she can to prove that the Egyptian woman is the example of will, strength and sacrifice, and that Egypt’s women of all ages are capable of facing the challenges and making the impossible [possible],” she added.
On the Egyptian Women’s Day, Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi honored a number of women and ideal mothers.
The Egyptian woman has been honored since paranoiac eras over history for her role in the society andit has been depicted on temples, said President Sisi, adding “In modern life, the Egyptian woman has participated in the political life since 1919 revolution.”
He called for enforcing laws that aim at protecting women’s rights, putting an end to demotic violence and tackling the issues of early marriage and deprivation of education and post-divorce rights.
Moreover, Sisi proposed establishing a fund to address the challenges faced by the Egyptian women after he reviewed with the health minister the possibility to screen and treat women nationwide for breast cancer.
