About 67 percent of Qatar’s higher education graduates are women, said the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lulwah Al-Khater.

This came during the participation of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a meeting of the Women’s Group for Foreign Policy in the United States.

Asked about women’s rights in Qatar, she said: “Qatar is fine when it comes to women’s rights. We look forward to seeing more women leaders. About 67 percent of Qatar’s higher education graduates are women, 52 percent of women work in Qatar, we are more than men in the educational fields”, she added.

The official, when asked about freedom of expression in Qatar, urged everyone to visit any of the universities in Doha to listen to the discussions taking place, including discussions on governance and whether the Gulf should be a monarchical or democratic system of government.

These are the types of discussions that we conduct in our universities freely, and that is the difference between us and many of our neighbors who prefer to silence the different views of their opinion.”
