In Egypt a new channel managed by women wearing the niqab.

CAIRO (EGYPT) – If for lots of people seems not so easy to think about a woman wearing a veil and, at the same time, taking up a carreer in a sector she likes, it is also interesting to be informed that in Cairo a new channel could overcome too rigid clichés.

Maria TV is managed by journalists, authors, camera operators with something in common, beyond their professionalism : they are all women wearing a niqab.

The broadcasts started on the occasion of the Ramadan and one of the motivations expressed by these young women is to show that their dress can “hide” persons competent and professional, able to have a good carreer.
