The Distinguished Woman

Societies signal distinguished samples of personalities with pride, and reflect the spot lights on them in order for them to take an inspirational course for generations to come. 

Arabic societies like other societies, highly appreciate figures where great virtues of giving transcend in different fields, and there is nothing greater than distinguished women in our societies, as they are great models to be followed by the old or the young, these women can be the working farmers, the teachers, the doctors, the engineers, the scientists, the lawyers, the activists in all fields whether social or political, they are the ones to sacrifice, and in all of their cases, they are the mothers! 

Yes, we appreciate such women in our Arabic societies, and we even point to them with pride as distinguished figures to be followed, however as we look deep within ourselves such dignified and highly respectful perspective of such women was not found to yet to reflect upon the experiences of such women in the media. We could not previously promote such women as the distinguished women, as their radiance is blocked away in the villages they reside in, or the cities…their radiance could not trespass their cities' boundaries or their countries, maybe the very few only!

Those who are in charge of the White Hands Campaign and for a media geared towards women, believe it is necessary to map images of such honorable personalities from whichever countries they come from to be beacons and role models for generations to come. And a decision was made to make a TV program not less in quality and grandiose from the other two TV programs: " The meeting with the First Lady, " and "The creative cast," to exchange ideas about such figures, and to make such distinguished personalities close to us, for our sons and daughters to see and give channel a dialogue with them, and to know more of their distinguished angles and t follow with their experiences and distinguished ideas.
