As a young Saudi woman, I am proud to say that the Kingdom has undergone unprecedented changes since the arrival of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, especially in terms of women’s empowerment. These changes are transforming the face of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi women now have many rights in different fields. We have seen Saudi women serving as members of parliament and deputy ministers.

I would like to share my own experiences and how the administration’s efforts to empower women in Saudi Arabia have affected me.

My name is Al-Anoud Fahd Al-Daoud. I am the first female entrepreneur in Saudi Arabia in the field of technology services and business solutions, and I am a graduate of Princess Noura Bint Abdul Rahman University with a degree in Informatics. I am passionate about the technology industry and believe in the importance of women’s role in this field.

I have been involved in many voluntary activities aimed at strengthening the position of women in the technology sector and encouraging them to actively participate in the sector. I also act as an ambassador for women in technology, striving to encourage and inspire women to achieve excellence and innovation in the world of technology.

My family is my biggest support system, and they give me the support I need to achieve my dreams and career aspirations. I believe that positivity and optimism are essential in life, and I see challenges as opportunities for learning and development.

I am committed to bringing positive change to society through my role as a technology ambassador and writer. I strive to achieve success and excellence in the technology industry and to be a role model for ambitious women who strive to achieve their goals and succeed in various fields.

Empowering women and achieving gender equality is not just an ambitious goal in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but rather an integral part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 program. Saudi women are an integral part of society and play a crucial role in building the bright future of the kingdom.

Since the launch of Vision 2030, the Saudi leadership has been committed to empowering and empowering women in all areas. In recent years, there have been radical changes in Saudi Arabia in terms of women’s empowerment and the opening up of new opportunities in various fields. These changes have had a positive impact on social and economic development.

In the field of education, the doors have opened for women to enter universities and colleges and pursue postgraduate studies in various fields. This has contributed to the empowerment and economic empowerment of women, as they are now playing a greater role in the labor market and contributing to the economic development of the kingdom.

Women in Saudi Arabia have also made great strides in political participation. They were allowed to vote and stand for election in local elections for the first time, a historic achievement for women in the kingdom. Since then, women have actively participated in political processes and held leadership positions in local governments.

In the field of women’s rights, many laws and regulations have been enacted to protect women’s rights and ensure gender equality. This has helped to strengthen the position of women and achieve equality with men in society.

In addition to the government’s efforts, there are many inspirational women in Saudi Arabia who are paving the way for others. These women are role models for young women and show them what is possible.

Princess Rima bint Bandar: She is the first woman to be appointed as ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States. She is a role model for women who aspire to achieve excellence in the international diplomatic field.

Mashael Al-Shammari: She is a successful aeronautical engineer and the first female rocket and spacecraft engineer in the Gulf Cooperation Council. She is an inspiration to women who are interested in STEM fields.

Adah Almutairi: She is a professor, scientist, chemist, and Saudi businesswoman. She is a role model for women who are interested in science and entrepreneurship.

These are just a few examples of the many inspirational women in Saudi Arabia. These women are breaking down barriers and showing the world what is possible. They are an inspiration to young women everywhere.

I am proud to be a part of this movement and to be working to empower women in Saudi Arabia. I believe that women have the potential to achieve great things, and I am committed to helping them reach their full potential.

The Forty-Four is one of the kingdom’s leading institutions promoting female leadership models. I founded an organization that aims to empower women and increase their participation in the labour market by developing women’s leadership skills and enabling them to succeed in various fields. 

I hope that my story will inspire other women to follow their dreams and to never give up on their goals. Together, we can create a more just and equitable society for all.
