Nearly 100 Women Appointed Judges in State Council
In a first for the country, nearly 100 women have been appointed as judges in the State Council, including 50 vice-counselors and 48 assistant counselors.
Nearly 100 women have been sworn in as the State
Council’s first female judges since its establishment in 1946, including
50 vice-counselors and 48 assistant counselors.
In June, the
Egyptian Supreme Council of Judicial Bodies approved the appointment of
women as judges and prosecutors, leaving an indelible mark on the
history of the Administrative Judiciary.
This comes after a
presidential directive on International Women's Day in March, which
called for the appointment of women as judges in the State Council and
the Public Prosecution.
The National Council for Women applauded
the move, calling it a demonstration of the political will to empower
women to take on male-dominated fields.
