If there’s ever been a more exciting time to honour the sequence of pioneering moments coming out of the region, it’s now more than ever. Women, from all walks of life, have been striving and paving their own paths for a greater society – one that celebrates equality, and social, economic, cultural and political achievements by women.

Women have long had to examine and reconsider the early scripts we were given about how we should think, learn, and behave. And now, we’re breaking the bias and rewriting our own narratives. Beacons of hope for girls of the next generation – and generations to come – the women of today celebrate womanhood, accomplishments, and as well, pay tribute to those female heroines currently changing the world.

Today is your day, so is tomorrow and the day after.

At BURO. Middle East, there’s nothing we love more than championing women (especially from the region) who challenge stereotypes, fight biases and break the mould on a daily basis. This International Women’s Day, we’ve teamed up with eight women. Each of them is an agent of change. Take a look at the region’s heroines below…
