You are right there madonna! Suzanne Mubabrak deserves to be on the list (I'm not saying that Sheikha Mozah shouldn't be, but I know about Mrs Mubarak and her work). It's a shame.
Wherever Rania falls on the list she deserves to be there. What an amazing woman!

Queen Rania meets with Ministry of Social Development and National Task Force to review draft regulation for child nurturing centers

Her Majesty met on Sunday with the National Task Force to review the new regulations before they're sent for approval by the Cabinet and the Legislative Authority.


Queen Rania said that the reason she got involved in such an effort is because "there's no one to protect [these children] and no one to speak for them". She also said that it is important to have an obvious and tangible change in the status quo to improve the lives of these children.

Great picture mtbcm - that is my favourite picture of Rania and I love that purple dress she is wearing.

Do you know what event that was? And are there other pictures of her wearing it?

And as for the Forbes list, I take those rankings with a pinch of salt. It great that she's on the list though - for me she represents a strong image and voice for muslim women in the world. An example of what you could be if you use what you have - beauty, intelligence, dignity, class and compassion to the best of your ability.

I desagree with you I don't think that rania or another royal women in the muslim world represents the muslim women because there are more than 25 muslim's country in the world with Different traditions and Cultures and one woman can't reprerents those a different people maybe she represents her country but not more.
also I never heard that European princess represents The Christian world like Mathilde or lat princess Diana who was very famous and they are just Belgian princess and a British princess, because they Belongs to a diferents culturs even if they are Europeans and Christians.

That is an excellent and most relevant observation Shrifia and I commend you for saying it.

Good point Shrifia,Why Queen Rania should represent the women of the muslim world to be an example for them??!In my humble opinion, she represents only the Hashemite kingdom,not even the Jordanian women.



Snowwhite,what do you mean by "An example of what you could be if you use what you have - beauty, intelligence, dignity, class and compassion to the best of your ability." ???!

Thanks for the link to the magazine Salma (lahamag), I enjoy looking at the pictures if not understanding the words! And thank you for the link to the picture of Rania in that lovely purple dress - that colour really suits her I feel.

And to respond to Salome:

Quote:

.

Perhaps I was not particularly clear in my original quote, I really meant this in two ways. I think for people looking in from the west at Rania as a muslim woman she gives a great impression that is not just about women in shrouds, scuttling behind their men with no voice, which is a stereotype that I think many in the west have of women from this culture. When she first really visited the US/UK I can remember the great surprise that some members of the press had when they first saw this beautiful queen - articulate, dressed in western clothes, face visible, conversant with world issues, standing next to her husband. It was a shock to them I think - their expectations were certainly not someone like Rania.

And as for setting an example and this sort of answers your other query and my second point in a way:

Quote:
Snowwhite,what do you mean by "An example of what you could be if you use what you have - beauty, intelligence, dignity, class and compassion to the best of your ability." ???!
I stand by what I say in that I think that Rania, despite yes being in a position of great privilege, can show especially young muslim women (well women of any creed in fact) that if you use what you have, beauty, brains, class, dignity, compassion for others (things which I believe she possesses) you can make an impression and break away from perhaps supposed customs and restrictions that are imposed on your sex and make your own impression in the world. Rania to me tries to do that through her position to make things better for others, of course she can't obtain world peace, she can't find a cure for cancer, there are many things she can't do - I'm not suggesting she is some kind of special being above all others because she is Queen but that position does lend to her the opportunity to make things better, which she could ignore and do nothing or take action and she has taken action. However, I do feel that she creates a great impression (at least in the west) for what she had achieved so far and I hope as she matures she will reach out and do more.

That's not to say other muslim women leaders don't attempt similar good works and don't posesses her attributes - but she is the one that probably attracts the most attention especially in the west. And if she can make one muslim girl think that there is a different way to be and that you can be modern/western without comprising your muslim beliefs then all to the good.
