Best Story

A famous Arab leader, Mohammad always surrounded himself with strong women: women that were opinionated, women that challenged the status quo, and women that contributed back to society. His wife employed him in her business and his daughters became experts on women's rights. We realize that the example that is set for us through history is that women make the difference. The influence of his inner circle of women gave Mohammad the edge to leave his imprint on the world.
