The empowerment of women has been an ongoing process for over six decades, since the establishment of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 1946. Shortly after
that date, the tragic exodus of the Palestinians from their homeland took place, and the impact was tremendously devastating to Jordan and the Arab world at large. In the absence of human security, hope and the opportunity for good education were shattered. All Jordanian girls who had been sent to Palestine for their matriculation level of education had to leave their schools abruptly and return
home with utter disappointment.
