Google's daily Doodle is paying tribute to one of Egypt's first female lawyers

We love a Google Doodle deep dive and todays couldn’t be better as the search engine giant has dedicated its search box to Egypt’s first female lawyer, Mufidah Abdul Rahman.

Born in Cairo in 1914, Rahman who had nine children was not only the first lawyer, but the first married woman to enrol at Cairo University’s Faculty of Law.

She was also the first mother to graduate from the educational institute, and even practised law before she had the right to vote (Egyptian women didn’t receive this right until 1956).

Did we mention she had nine children? We think you’ll agree, this Doodle is well deserved.
