In Ancki's time, although they wern't supposted to be Pharaohs, women in Egypt enjoyed almost as much freedom as men. While many modern countries do a pretty good job of respecting women's rights, some countries have room for improvement.
I think Ancki would have wanted a portion of her web page devoted to this issue. Here are some links that reference women's rights in Egypt and the Middle East.
