The Ministry of Antiquities and Egypt Exploration Society celebrate International Women's Day 2016

On Tuesday 8th March 2016 the world celebrated International Women’s Day – an opportunity to celebrate the role and achievements of women in every field. To mark this day, the Ministry of Antiquities in Egypt and the Egypt Exploration Society together recognised the work of Prof Zeinab El-Kordy.

Throughout her long career she has worked at numerous sites in Egypt and educated some of Egypt’s most influential scholars of the present day. We were honoured to welcome His Excellency, Dr Mamdouh El-Damaty, the Minister of Antiquities who shared some of his personal memories with Prof El-Kordy and the audience. Others paying their respects included Prof Faiza Haikal, Prof Ola El-Aguizy, Prof Hassan Selim, Prof Mohamed El-Shahat, Prof Doha Mostafa, and Prof Heba Nouh. Following the presentations and a short video documenting her career, Prof El-Kordy was presented with a plaque from the Ministry and the EES to mark the special occasion.

The Society would like to extend their thanks to the Ministry of Antiquities for bringing this event together for a second year and look forward to working together again in the future.
