We all know the negative stereotypes that go with women from Islamic nations; dependent, uninspiring, covered and therefore controlled. Well check out this amazing international GoWoman:
Adventurer Raha Moharrak, the first Saudi woman and youngest Arab to conquer Everest, urged women in the conservative Muslim kingdom of the Gulf to “challenge themselves” as she arrived back in the region.
Her group of four, including a Qatari royal, a Palestinian and an Iranian, was greeted with cheers and garlands of flowers on arrival from Nepal late Sunday at Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
“It was unbelievable,” said an emotional 25-year-old Moharrak, covered from head to toe in a black cloak or abaya.
“I’m the first but I really hope I’m not the last,” she said.
