Women already are majority in Arab universities. According to UNESCO, 60 per cent of students and more than half of the professors of many Arab universities are women. However, they are discriminated against and they still have problems in obtaining a job according to their training. Statistics show the significant improvement in educational opportunities for Arab women. Female education is the most powerful weapon to improve their status and the most powerful force for social change, said Ayad Qazzaz, Professor at the Islamic University of Gaza. The number of University Women has tripled since 1970 in the Middle East. Iraq has been the only State that has receded in recent years, largely due to the 2003 invasion. Education is key in the advancement of women and the engine of the development of these countries, that wasting the brainpower of thousands of titled.

One of the problems of women in the Arab world is that improvements in their education are not reflected in your work situation. According to Rafia Ghubash, Rector of the Arab Gulf University, in Bahrain, the most serious problem is what happens to these women when they get their degree and entering the labor market, where the strict cultural tradition and gender discrimination prevent them obtain positions commensurate with their education. A European Union report says that despite the high turnover titled women, their participation in the labour market just over 30% in the Middle East and North Africa, the lowest rate in the world. The difference increases significantly when we speak of administrative and managerial positions. States spend vast sums of money to the education of women whose future is conditioned by the labour market, their cultural tradition and its laws that discriminate against them in almost all aspects of life. The unique perspective of many Arab women is staying home or devote himself to the education of girls, profession that is saturated.
