This news article informs us that there are a rising number of female entreprenur in the world and the majority of them is exploring new market. For instance, Sabah is an entreprenur of a company that produces mocktail drink provided for muslims who are prohibited to drink alcohol according to their religious doctrines. She comments that nowadays more and more women are breaking this general stereotype about women's status in the business world.

This article reminds me of the concept of intersectonality. As a woman and as a muslim, such statuses generally produce more difficulty to her because both statuses are stereotyped and discriminated in the society. Particularly, the business world, even in the Western countries, is dominated by male. It is really encouraging to see Muslim women breaking the taboo and tell the world that everything is possible.
