International Women’s Day

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, Ragia Elazhary, the wife of the ambassador of Egypt in Berlin and May Erbel, the group leader of the Arab-European Cultural Exchange group invited the WiB members to a special event at the residence of Egypt on 9 March 2020. Dr. Dörthe Engelcke of the Max Planck Institute gave an interesting lecture on: “How Christian and Muslim communities in the middle East marry, divorce, and inherit: stories from the court room and beyond.”

The event was attended by ladies of the diplomatic and cultural societies in Berlin and concluded with a harp concert by harpist Ne3am Tarek and a sumptuous lunch.
