The Khaleeji Blogger Movement

Talk about female empowerment! Khaleeji women (GCC natives) are totally changing the blogging game, regardless of criticisms and negativity over cultural and religious norms. These bloggers are all Doha-based. They are truly an inspiration for all women and actually embrace their culture and religion. If there ever was a glass ceiling in the realm of being social media influencers, these women have shattered it. To face the public and deliver honest reviews about services and products takes courage, particularly if there is a definite possibility of facing a negative backlash for doing so. Apart from fashion blogging, some of these women also blog about culture and lifestyle, showing the type of people they meet when they travel and giving back when necessary. I’m glad to have met some of these remarkable women in person. With Ramadan well underway, I'm sure these women will have awesome content up on their blogs. Check them out on Instagram!
