Sisa Abu Daooh: Egypt's best mom

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)

Sisa Abu Daooh took on male identity after her husband’s death in order to find employment to support her daughter.

Egyptian woman who has lived as man for 40 years voted “best mum.”


“Labouring jobs were closed to women, and she lacked the education for an office job. So to the fury of her family, Abu Daooh chose another way of finding employment: she took on a male identity.”
