Description

The Rare Books and Special Collections Library Princess is holding and exhibition titled Princess Fawzia: The Duality of Egyptian Womanhood Through Western and Egyptian Eyes

Princess Fawzia is the sister of King Farouk (the last monarch to rule Egypt) and the first wife of the Shah of Iran. It is our pleasure to celebrate her life and legacy - on the sixth anniversary of her death.

The exhibition showcase that while women play a critical role in Egypt’s social, political and economic development, they are often portrayed in international media as victims of oppressive laws, societal expectations and religious boundaries.

This exhibition explores this contradiction through an in-depth study of official and media portrayals of Princess Fawzia.

Sunday - Thursday 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
