Psst, wanna know who Doria is?
Doria Shafik was an Egyptian feminist, poet and editor, and one of the principal leaders of the women’s liberation movement in Egypt in the mid-1940s. She was the first Egyptian woman to obtain a doctorate from the Sorbonne. After being excluded from the elite Feminist Union, Shafik started her own movement, the Daughters of the Nile Union, dedicated to educating and organizing working women of all classes. In 1957, she denounced Gamal Abdel Nasser as a dictator and was subsequently put under house arrest, erased from all historical print media, and had her own magazine shut down.
