Beautiful Egyptian women... what does your mind picture when you hear these words? If your fantasy draws you an image of Cleopatra and Nefertiti, you should know: these images now are more history and have almost nothing common with appearance, style of life and character on women living today in this arabic country located on the north of Africa. We can state that nowadays there are two main types of Egyptian women - those who follow all arabic Muslim traditions and modern feminized ladies which feel they are equal with their men. • Traditional Muslim women If you see this African woman ( it happens really very rare), you won't understand if she is a beauty and if she has very attractive shapes. Traditional women's clothes hide her face and her body, so that no one but her husband or parents can see her. The destiny of an Egyptian women, as befits a true Muslim, is her house, children, husband. Her you will not find women on the market, or among the service staff at the hotel. They are not allowed to do many things: it happens through Koran traditions. However, no one even thinks that Egyptian women are unhappy: traditions are deep in local mentality of these people. And local husbands respectfully call their beloved wives "Madame". Their character and passion can be seen, perhaps, better in a famous charming and magical belly dance. Most of women who follow Muslim traditions, live in rural places and villages. The "average" woman in this country gives birth to 5 children, and families living in villages have 7, 8 and even more kids! Naturally, mothers simply do not have any time to work. Their job is to take care about their children, cook, make laundry. All women living in small towns and villages and many of them which live in large cities and even in Cairo, are housewives. Although the country provides free medical aid and free education, the life of a woman with such a "team" of kids turns into an eternal care about them. No time to care about herself is left, and probably, some ladies in egypt bless Muslim traditions: it is very convenient to hide modest clothes and a face with no make-up under traditional arabic dress. • Modern women Egypt is the country which meets millions of tourists. Certainly, tourists, coming here, bring to the land their way of life, "drag" with themselves the atmosphere of freedom from Europe and America. They seriously affect minds of Egyptian women. So that many of young ladies are sure: they will never ever agree to wear long traditional dress and paranja. They know that high education will open them the way to the other world, free of religious prejudices and strict taboo. These young ladies wear casual or fashion clothes, denim or leather. However, even here a tourist coming to this blessed country will see: there is something which differs an Egyptian girl from a girl from Europe or even Asia. It is not the color of skin: although Egyptian people refer to Caucasian, it is darker a bit. Girls in Egypt adore to wear jewellery. Even if she has jeans or an a leather jacket, be sure, when you come closer, you will see she wears several golden or silver rings, beautiful earrings, bracelets and necklace. Traditions live deep in blood, and girls wear the same charming oriental perfum like countrywomen. So that we can state: Cleopatra and the current Egyptian ladies are the daughters of two different cultures already. Egyptian girls in large cities are actively using cosmetics, lax clothin,trying to be trendy and unfettered. Also, there is a tendency among modern Egyptians women, who are not hurrying to get married and have children, and strive to get an education and profession.
