Popular Egyptian violinist Mahmoud Sorour has added another string to his bow

concerts staged throughout the Kingdom during 2018, said he was amazed at how
many women wanted to register for the institute with some even hoping to make a
career out of playing the violin.

in Riyadh to train me. This is a dream come true.” she said.

violinists to a level that will allow them to perform at a new opera house in
Jeddah, due to be completed by 2022. And Al-Hazmi would love to become one of
those violinists. “I had never considered making a career out of playing the
violin, but now there is the institute it becomes a real possibility. I can see

the new institute.

they have evening classes that do not interfere with my job,” she said.
She added that playing the violin was not as
easy as it looked. “Violinists dazzle me, especially when they dance while
playing the instrument. I feel it creates an intimacy between the musician and
the violin, and that is why I want to learn to play. It would be nice to one
day play as a professional in public.”

bill that would equalize inheritance rights between men and women has created
debate here in Tunisia’s countryside, where gender discrimination is the

that a son receive twice as much as a daughter from a father’s estate.

applying the current law’s 2:1 formula should safeguard Latifa’s future, since
the land already granted to her by her father is less than the roughly 3,500

40,000 square meters.

their fight against the forced wearing of the hijab this year despite a
“sinister crackdown” by authorities in 2018 in which dozens were arrested,
activists said on Thursday.
women took to the streets holding their hijabs aloft in protests at the strict
dress code that quickly spread on social media last year, leading to a “bitter
backlash” by authorities, Amnesty International said in a statement.
the last year has shown is that people in Iran, especially women, are no longer
afraid to go out and protest, whether in large numbers or through lone acts of
protest,” said Mansoureh Mills, Amnesty International’s Iran researcher.
the authorities try to clamp down on these peaceful acts of resistance, we are
likely to see more and more women and men being arrested, detained and
prosecuted for demanding their rights.”
Sepehri Far, Iran researcher at Human Rights Watch, said the crackdown was
driven by women increasingly “pushing the limits”.
who are choosing to protest are aware of the risks and are choosing to do so
because they want to see a change. I don’t think there is any turning back on
these women’s issues - it will only grow,” she told the Thomson Reuters
remarks came in the same week two men were jailed for six years in Iran for
supporting the campaign against the strict dress code, according to reports
from two human rights groups.
