Saudi filmmaker Haifaa Al-Mansour: Arab women are ‘sassy’ and strong, not victims

Wed, 2019-01-23 11:39 DAVOS: One of the biggest misconceptions about Arab women is that they are victims — but they are in fact “sassy,” according to Haifaa Al-Mansour, Saudi Arabia’s first female filmmaker. Speaking on Wednesday during a panel at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Al-Mansour discussed the various judgements made about women from the region. “All the scripts I get about Muslim and Arab women (imply they are) all victims and sad,” she said. “But we are very sassy, we are very strong, so don’t take us for granted.” Al-Mansour explained that although some Arab women are constricted for various reasons, it is not accurate to view all Arab women in this way.   “We are way more than what they think Arab women are,” she said. Reflecting on her personal journey, Al-Mansour explained that although she comes from a conservative society, social norms are changing. “I knew I came from a society where women are expected to take a more traditional role, but I feel this is changing because I now feel more celebrated at home,” she said. Saudi Arabia has seen a push in social reform spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman through Vision 2030, an initiative that aims to broaden the Saudi economy. Major recent changes in the Kingdom include lifting the driving ban on women and reopening cinemas. “Saudi Arabia is building its arts and culture industry, and that’s where we should put our energy,” Al-Mansour said. Speaking about Saudi women entering the workforce in the Kingdom, Al-Mansour stressed the need for women to “support each other” on the professional playing field. “Women don’t want to be marginalized any more — that’s why we see things like the #MeToo movement,” she said. On an international level, Al-Mansour argued that we should get beyond thinking about East and West and concentrate on working together to achieve something universal.

Saudi sisters’ deaths in New York ruled suicide

Wed, 2019-01-23 16:45 JEDDAH: The deaths of Saudi-born sisters Rotana Farea, 22, and Tala Farea, 16, in New York’s Hudson River last October were the result of drowning by suicide, said the office of the city’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Barbara Samson. “My office determined that the death of the Farea sisters was the result of suicide, in which the young women bound themselves together before descending into the Hudson River,” Samson said in a statement. The two bodies were discovered by a passer-by just before 3 p.m. on Oct. 24. The New York Police Department (NYPD) said police responded to a 911 call and “upon arrival, officers discovered two unidentified females unconscious and unresponsive with no obvious signs of trauma.” Emergency personnel declared them dead at the scene. An official at the Saudi Embassy in Washington refuted an Associated Press (AP) claim that the mother of the sisters said she had received a call from the embassy requesting that the family leave the US because the daughters had requested asylum.  “Any/all communications with the mother had nothing to do with a supposed asylum claim,” the Saudi official told Arab News.  The NYPD denied releasing any information regarding an alleged asylum request. The family declined an Arab News request for comment.   Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Rotana FareaTala FareaHudson RiverNew YorkSaudi Arabia No indication sisters found dead in NY were killed: PoliceBodies of two Saudi sisters found bound together beside New York river

Author: Arab News JeddahID: 1548275826603259900Thu, 2019-01-24 23:06 JEDDAH: Over 190 diplomatic representatives from around 90 countries visited King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) recently, to observe how international study programs have benefited students from across the world. The university, based in Thuwal, also hosted representatives from the UN, the World Health Organization and the EU. KAUST’s president, Dr. Tony Chan, welcomed the visit as a sign of the university’s growing significance as an academic and research institution on the global stage. “The diplomatic delegation’s visit to KAUST focused on facilitating cultural cooperation to attract international students and researchers,” he said. “Hosting ambassadors and consuls general at KAUST is a reflection of the global talent we recruit to our university.” During their visit, diplomats met with Chan, faculty members and students from their home countries, and discussed their experiences of KAUST, what they felt they had learned while studying in Saudi Arabia, and more generally the benefits of studying abroad. The visitors were given a tour of the campus, and learned about the latest research being conducted at KAUST. They were also shown examples of the entrepreneurship initiatives supported by the university, including successful startup companies launched by former students and academic staff. Established in 2009, KAUST is a graduate-level research university on the shores of the Red Sea, dedicated to advancing scientific and technological progress through interdisciplinary research, education and innovation.
