  1. Congratulations! So very proud for you. Great article, very exciting stuff. I know you are so proud to write about and celebrate women getting to have freedom to have careers. Love and peace, Janine.

  2. Well done! Not just any article, but one with a lot of detail. Congratulations. Hope your celebrating, not thinking of your next article!

  3. Congratulations Sakshi. This is a significant achievement. Let this continue in abundance. ΰ€Έΰ€Ύΰ€Ήΰ€Έΰ₯€ ΰ€²ΰ€‘ΰ€Όΰ€•ΰ₯€!

  4. This is FANTASTIC! I’m SO happy for your article to be published but even more happy to read how so much has changed for Middle Eastern women entering into the work force. So much more “change” is necessary for women to become equal to Men in all parts of the world but this is a terrific beginning! Thanks for keeping us all updated. By the way, I’ve reblogged this.

  6. Great post. I had never heard about Women’s Day until today–go figure–where have I been all my life?!!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post! I enjoyed reading your article, and its great to see the progress that professional women are making in Qatar. To the intention of celebrating progress and encouraging more female professionals, the article met its goal. But surely there must be another side to this story. Even in developed countries where women’s rights have been championed for a long time, women face different challenges than men in the workplace, especially as pertains to work-life balance. Would love to see your view on this aspect.

  8. A new follower here, and i have just read your article, what a great piece on what is offered to woman in Qatar, it should be the same the world over. well done to you

  9. I just noticed I wasn’t following you, which doesn’t make sense. I must have unfollowed you by mistake. I just remedied that πŸ˜‰

  10. My heart is filled with great joy for you, i am so proud of your my sister…you will make an inspiring mark on this world throughout your life…you will be a blessing to many women, I am with you and will always have my prayers embrace you each and everyday. Congratulations again…my heart smiles for your success!!!

    • Empowerment of women is needed in every corner of the world.. This is just a starting, I wish I can bring about more change!

      But well begun is half done, they say..

  11. Congrats! And great article.
    I worked for two years recently with an engineer from Iran. It really opened my ignorant eyes to the women’s rights issues and strength of women in that particular nation (and others around it I am sure also).

    • I don’t have the data to compare but I feel Qatar has liberalized more than Iran, at least in this issue. But, overall empowerment of women is needed in every corner of the world..

  12. How awesome Sakshivashist!

    You didn’t even mention this great feat when you spoke to me on Totally Inspired Mind!
    I am so proud of you!

    I remember how elated I was when a Feature Story made the Orange County Register here in the Entertainment Section/Food Frenzy. I wish the whole thing had appeared but it was edited and trimmed to a Reader’s Digest version of the original, and it had my photos I did for the CEO’s of Tomy’s Cafe Diner in Garden Grove, CA, close to where I live.

    I read all the Writer’s Market books and you should too, especially The Writer’s Market 2013 Deluxe Version. I have been reading them for the last going on 3 years now.

    Your photos are amazing and you are a great writer.

    This is just the beginning-hopefully for the both of us!

  13. This is really nice article Sakshi….. it is always good to read such positive and inspiring stories. Gulf remains a mystery. On one hand, it is very un-modern for women but at the same time there is a lot more respect and security for women there – more than Asia and Western world probably.

    The way these countries – Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE etc are catching up with the western world in terms of development, employment and labor laws would be interesting to see.

  14. Very cheering to hear about women working in a variety of fields in Qatar. So glad you wrote this article, it is all too rare to read positive accounts of women’s life at work, so thank you very much.

    • I am glad to give a voice to a number of women here…many in the world still perceive Gulf and Middle-east as an orthodox part, but actually slowly things are improving..
