As an example, she cited Asian writer and publicist Helen Ziyat. “Helen Ziyat said that not being silent is a privilege. Through her articles, essays, and books, she struggled with attempts to silence her. There are a lot of women who boldly challenged society in Asia. An Asian woman is very strong, she began to occupy important positions in education, sports, literature and in many other areas today. But despite all this, there is still a lot of oppression towards them. Many people believe that women should not be strengthened in society. We need new opportunities to change the stereotypical attitude towards them in order to show its real potential, ”Mosa Almalki emphasized.
