Empowering Women in Lebanon : #FemaleForwardInternational

Women can shatter the glass ceiling. They can overcome the glass cliff. These are invisible barriers that hinder women from succeeding in their professions, but they are not impossible to surmount.

Within this global campaign, #FemaleForwardInternational, we look at Lebanon, where societal and cultural norms continue to influence the status of women at home and in the work place. But amidst these hurdles, women have also shown that they can conquer obstacles and break stereotypes.

 #FemaleForwardInternational presents stories of 10 Lebanese women - written by Nicole Hamouche -  who are impacting their communities, inspiring the youth and celebrating their Lebanese heritage.
