British Egyptian Society Debate 15 6 15

14th April 2015
Is there a role for Women in Arab Politics and Business?
One item that came out of discussions with younger members was a request for more
debates so we are starting with quite a stunning one. Thanks to the generosity of our
Patron and Founder Member, Dr. Ahmed El Mokadem who is sponsoring the event
including the bringing over the speakers from Cairo, we have an impressive lineup of
speakers. It will be in the Pall Mall Room on the 1st floor of the Army & Navy Club, 36 Pall
Mall, London SW1Y on Monday 15th June. The subject, Is there a role for Women in Arab
Politics and Business, is a timely and important one. Doors will open at 6pm and the
debate will start at 6.30pm sharp. We have a lot to cover. The programme will be:6.30 sharp

We are keen to have a good audience and fill the 120 seats. We are receiving
support from Riddledown Collegiate and Roehampton University so we look forward
to questions from young and enquiring members of the audience as well as our
slightly more mature members and their friends.
Yours sincerely
Honorary Secretary
