CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – Egypt’s judiciary chief has named the country’s first female judges despite opposition from conservative Muslims, according to a decree published Wednesday.
Mukbil Shakir, the head of the Supreme Judicial Council, appointed 31 women to judge or chief judge positions in Egypt’s courts, the official Middle East News Agency said, quoting Shakir’s decree.
The move is expected to give a boost to President Hosni Mubarak’s political and social reforms that have been widely criticized as too restricted. But others said the announcement still falls short of providing women equal opportunities.
The decree said the women, who previously were state prosecutors, passed a special test before being named to their new posts.

I would be OK with a female prime minister but i guess after i see a true male prime minister and by male i mean a man of his word not by sex or gender, the term that most ppl take for granted and say "Ra-gel" i had so much hope and optimism in this new Clean government since it was spearheaded with a man who carries the same name...I hope they don't put you away for 4 years mohaly for Blogging u can remove it after reading it if you wish...
