Hiya is a web-page about women past and present, focusing on the life and work of Arab women, provides a platform for including women from all over the world. Focus is on the life of normal women including famous ones as part of the general picture. Life as lived rather than discourse or paradigms of oppression would guide the philosophy of selections. Contributions would be vetted before inclusion and are encouraged with the purpose of establishing an increasing data-base. Creative submissions by readers are encouraged in a section made available for anyone with a film, picture they took, poem, short story, or idea they wish to share.
