Manama, March 19, 2012
Bahrain has once again scored high in the number of prominent businesswomen it has in the region by clinching key rankings in the world's '100 Most Powerful Arab Women of 2012' list.
In the coveted CEO Magazine rankings, Sabah Khalil Almoayyed ranked 42nd, Mona Almoayyed ranked 58th and Lulwa Al Awadhi ranked 90th.
Eskan Bank general manager Sabah Khalil Almoayyed serves her role not only in the region's leading banking society but also holds a prominent position at Bahrain's Supreme Council for Women.
She continues her commitment to promote women's rights in the kingdom and their full participation in the society.
Known by many as the backbone of the Migrant Workers Protection Society, Mona Almoayyed continues to fight for the rights of the region's migrant and abused workers.
Further, she also serves as the chairwoman to the Bahrain Businesswomen's Society to empower Bahraini businesswomen and encourage and promote their business skills.
Apart from her social commitments, she is the managing director of one of Bahrain's most prestigious companies Y K Almoayyed and Sons.
She multi-tasks both her commitment towards her business and the society with perfection and strives to dedicate her complete potential to the society with full zeal.
Having been bestowed the title of the 'honorary cabinet minister' in 2002, Lulwa Al Awadhi, secretary-general at Bahrain's Supreme Council for Women and a powerful Bahraini women's advocate, has retained her promise to the society to continually support and protect the fair rights of women.
She utilises her role to campaign for the local parliament to introduce personal status law to protect women's rights in divorce and inheritance.
She is proudly remembered as one of the first practising female lawyers in Bahrain.-TradeArabia News Service
