During the last two years that I lived in Oman, having travelled to different parts of the Gulf, I could say that Omani women have more power in society, and as mothers and wives. They have progressed alongside men, even in higher social space, whether in arts, culture, economics, science, and enjoy much respect on all rungs of society.
I really admire how Omani women have emerged from a traditional society in the past years and how well they balance their careers and family responsibilities. On one hand, being business women and top professionals, and on the other, giving family and traditions their priority. They represent very well the Omani sense of hospitality.
The will to compete with not only their male colleagues but also with the fast growing world makes Omani women far apart from the rest. They are confident and determined to take on the world with surprise and prove their worth.
Omani women are the silent movers behind the scenes. They are hardworking and dedicated. They are modern and forward looking, but at the same time they are always the preservers of tradition.
