Arabian Princess. She was the first women in the Arab world to hold diplomatic positions and one of the leading figures in the fight for the emancipation of the Moroccan women. Born at the Royal Palace in Rabat, she was the second daughter of the Moroccan King Mohammed V. In 1942, she was one of the first women in Morocco to pass the exam allowing access to secondary schools and her father gave her the same primary education opportunities he gave his sons. She became the country's first director of the National Mutual Aid and was a model for Moroccan women through her formal commitment and contributions to many social and diplomatic actions. After her father's death in 1961, her brother King Hassan II, appointed her Morocco´s first female Ambassador to the United Kingdom in 1965, serving until 1969. She continued serving as an Moroccan Ambassador to Greece in 1969, 1970 and to Italy 1970 to 1973. She was also active in the Red Crescent Society. She died at the Royal House of Morocco, at age 81.
