Nermin Saad’s life turned around when her husband took a job in Saudi Arabia. This qualified engineer found herself in a country with strict social customs, where women and men are not allowed to mix in the workplace. ‘The engineering field in Saudi is 100% male! So I could either sit at home or change my career.’ She tried teaching, but it was not her domain. ‘I’m hard-wired to be an engineer,’ she says, ‘it’s what I trained for!’
