March 17 Shero: Saiza Nabarawi

(1897 - 1985)

"A double standard! This will always exist as long as men rule!"

Saiza Nabarawi was an Egyptian feminist and national liberation leader, journalist, and editor of L'Egyptienne, Egypt's first explicitly feminist journal. Post-independence, she continued to challenge the hypocrisy she saw among her male colleagues with regard to women.
