REVEALED: 100 most powerful Arab women 2013

Bint Omar

The website is called Arabian Business. I think it would be more appropriate if you only rank women who are IN business. Singers and artists (if you wish to have them included) can have a list of their own. Its a shame to see singers amongst business leaders. just a small comment to make your efforts more credible. all the best!

The truthful person

Highly amused by this list. Daddy owns the company so therefore that makes me powerful....These ladies need to be struck off. Numbers 54 and 69 in particular. 54 should not be on the list since she left daddys company and her daddy is no longer CEO....as for 69.......hmm!

SAYS WHO?

ANOTHER LIST ANOTHER INACCURATE LIST AS IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FEMALE ROYALS SO STOP PRODUCING THE LISTS AND FOCUS ON REAL NEWS I DONT CARE WHO THEY ARE OR WHAT THEY DO LET THEM STAND WITH ALL PEOPLE ON THIER ABILITY THE LIST WONT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THEY PAY TINY WAGES TO MAIDS CLEANERS ETC IF WE MUST HAVE A LIST LETS HAVE ONE ON WHICH aRAB COUNTRIES HAVE THE LOWEST MINIMUM WAGE OR WHO HAS MOST MAIDS AND DRIVER PER HEAD OF POPULATION AND RID THE MIDDLE EAST OF THE MODERN SLAVERY
THIS WONT GET PRINTED CAUSE IT OFFENDS THE DECISION MAKERS

Jay if you dont like our countries, you are always most welcome to leave!! Our countries (ARAB countries) is what made most people realize their dreams, you are talking about min. wage for maids and drivers, are you for real, if these people were satisfied with their wages at their homes they could have stayed there or if there is a better country (wage wise) they could have went there! so quit wining! if we for an instance compare the indian driver's wage to an equivalent one in India, he would be taking the same salary as a top government official! personally my driver which I admired, through his years in UAE had managed to build a big house with a decent farm around it in his town! a dream most arabs spend their lifetime trying to accomplish!! so please be quiet and thank god that you live in our countries because if you were in yours you would be barely living!! and you are always welcome to leave if you dont like it!!

Another typical comment from an Indian - if this is not published then AB is not being fair where Jay get to insult Arabs and it is published, but when I say Indian it won't get published!

Shermin Shali

Congratulations to all. Its really inspiring!!!

I am not happy with the list as Musicians & actresses are placed way ahead of more interlectually gifted women.In my humble opinion i feel a workoholic inspirational lady like Muna Abusulayman with all her contributions to the upliftment of women's issues ;rights ; achievements etc as well juggling a career & a single mum doing so much should be placed in the Top Ten.Besides been successful in whatever she attempts she is also extremely beautiful.

congrats to all arab women..

Marleen Vermeulen

Congratulations to all these women! I am not envious. I am just wondering which one of them is willing to help another woman set up a small business in the UAE, offering management assistant support to one-woman companies, SME's, etc. and thus enhancing the overall business environment? All I need is a small investment or a big company to partner up with.

Thank you for your consideration and best regards,
Marleen

It's time for Oman to appoint it's first female judge. There are lots of great candidates.
