People Worth Knowing: Shaikha Al-Zahem


Born: 1937.
Occupation: Journalism & Media.

Shaikha, Daughter of Abdulaziz Al Zahim & Sabeeka Al Sager, brought up in Qibla, Kuwait.

One of the first women who studied in the UK while women were struggling behind closed doors and ignorance. She came back as a journalist, established different magazines for kids, one noted would be called “Yasmeen & Dana”. She taught in school and had many participations on Radio, TV and Print mania.

Interesting Facts about her:

- She is the first woman who said “Hona Al Kuwait” as in “This is the state of kuwait”

- She and her friends burned down the Abbaya infront of school. Within seconds, the news spread all over the country. The rest is history.

I call her the mother of “moderate” freedom, more power to you. Girls owe you big time!

      Well they burned them to declare independence from “it”.

      Please know that Abbbaya is not a bad thing to wear or even hideous. Its just all about breaking the “YOU MUST WEAR THIS” rule.
