Dr. Fatimah Jamjoom, said the workshop needed find a model that empowered the women’s sections while sufficiently supporting them.
Problems facing women’s teaching at the university, namely multiple administrative and academic structures which intervene in the women's sections, were highlighted by Dr. Jamjoom, with her calling for more clarity.
