Egyptian women snatch 20% of cabinet in 2017 - CAPMAS

Egyptian women took over 20% of the cabinet in 2017 - the Year of Egyptian Women as declared by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) said in a statement on Wednesday.

 CAPMAS said Egyptian women managed to snatch several ministerial portfolios in 2017.

CAPMAS said about 25.8% of a total 45.9 million females in Egypt worked as civil servants in 2017.

Within the framework of Egypt's efforts to realize Sustainable Development Goals, the president declared 2017 as the Year of Egyptian women with an aim to empower women at the political and economic levels and ensure women fair civil and political rights and representation in all decision-making positions: in political parties, trade unions, civil society organizations, and state’s institutions, either legislative, executive or judiciary.

When the president took office he promised that woman shall have a role in political life, and a fair share in the House of Representatives, and that obstacles facing her in the executive posts shall be overcome. 

Throughout 2017, women have gained more rights in several fields with the support of the government. Women in Egypt managed to accomplish more at the political and decision-making levels. The Feb. 2017 Cabinet reshuffle included nine new portfolios, one of which was occupied by Hala el- Said, minister of planning. Furthermore, the Ministry of Investment and the Ministry of International Cooperation have been merged to become the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation headed by Sahar Nasr, thus keeping her as the head of four ministries. This is in addition to the already appointed Minister of Social Solidarity Ghada Wali and the Minister of Immigration Nabila Makram.
