Omani, hail­ing from Cuba

Omani women are dif­fer­ent due to their cul­tural up­bring­ing that sup­ports women be­ing the cen­tre of the fam­ily and so­cial life. Women in Oman have been given equal op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in ev­ery field, be it ed­u­ca­tion, health, army, po­lice or politics, with many min­is­te­rial po­si­tions, too. They are ac­tive in ful­fill­ing their con­tri­bu­tion to the growth and de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try and work side by side with men in shap­ing the fu­ture of Oman.

Omani women are in­spi­ra­tional and pi­o­neer­ing, chang­ing tra­di­tional bar­ri­ers to achieve in­ter­na­tional success in spheres of sci­ence, sports, arts and busi­ness. An ex­am­ple to all women world­wide.

Their com­mu­ni­ca­tion is lu­cid, prompt and very grace­ful. Their hard­work and en­ter­prise is al­ways present but sub­tle and dy­namic. They have a def­i­nite con­struc­tive pur­pose for Oman.

Chi­nese ex­pa­tri­ate

As an over­seas Chi­nese fe­male, I have stayed in Oman for many years and no­ticed, al­though there is a strong, con­ser­va­tive and cul­tural in­flu­ence on Omani women, in­clud­ing on lifestyle and work, they are very kind, friendly, pa­tient, loyal, truth­ful with their be­lief, as well as have re­spect for other re­li­gions and fam­ily val­ues. They like to change their lives with ed­u­ca­tion and chal­lenge them­selves to be­come en­trepreneur­s to con­trib­ute to so­ci­ety.

In­dian ex­pa­tri­ate

I have been in Oman for over 50 years and have seen Omani women from dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions from close quar­ters. They are tra­di­tion bound and at the same time mod­ern in their out­look. They man­age their fam­i­lies with ease, bring up chil­dren with good val­ues, and also go ahead and take up jobs of vary­ing types, and can be seen in high po­si­tions in busi­ness as well as in min­istries. These qual­i­ties make them unique from oth­ers.
