. She discussedthe challenges she faced as one of the rst women to be elected as amember of the Kuwaiti Parliament.“Personally, I have always looked for ways to bend the rules andbreak away from convention. As one of four women recently elected to the parlia
ment, we are pleased that the voters have recognised the need for change in order
In 2009, Dr Aseel Al Awa-dhi, along with three other Kuwaiti women created
history – the frst women
to have been elected to theKuwait National Assem-bly. But for Dr Al Awadhi,a PhD in Philosophy, the pride is not in the gender or

mission that she has setout to accomplish.
