American women of Middle Eastern origin or connection in Michigan have been on the march to success for years now, establishing successful businesses, becoming CEO’s, judges and wining elections.

Rashida Tlaib is one of those women who have beat difficult odds and achieved success as a first Arab-American women to serve in Lansing. Her recent win in the primary election for the U.S. Congress has attracted headlines, as she will become the first Muslim-American women to serve in Washington.

We plan to highlight American women of Middle Eastern origin or connection in Michigan who have achieved great success and leadership status. The women listed in this page are only the beginning of this project. We ask you kindly to send us nominations to include in this page. Nominations can be sent to kh10@comcast.net and please let us know how we can reach the person.

Rashida Tlaib, Democratic nominee for Congress from Michigan
