Once in my life in my home country, Egypt, I had a trip to two of Egypt's humble villages. One was in the Nile Delta and the other was in Upper Egypt.

There, I met many females of all ages , what really touched me deep, is how they all shared hope, hard-work, will, and the look at the future.

Rich or poor, old or young, there was no difference. In both villages, these women worked with very high dignity, self esteem and pride. I did not hear any mention of "staying at home" or "not showing up before strangers".

There were no strangers there, the whole village was their family, extended family. They just lived their lives and honorably, earn their living.
