"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

I’m stuck in overdue work hell, and while it’s excrutiating, I also have a really interesting topic. Like why the fuck are tumblr feminists not all over Truus Schröder-Schräder and her sister, An?

Taken from a source I’m using:

An Harrenstein-Schräder, a writer and art critic, was married to a doctor and lived in Amsterdam. Through her Truus was introduced to a circle of artists who held far greater interest for her than the bourgeois Utrecht society in which she lived. This group included Jacob Bendien (who lived with the Harrensteins for many years and was, in all probability, An’s lover), Paul Citroen (Bendien’s brother-in-law), Charley Toorop, Theo van Doesburg, and other members of the De Stijl circle, as well as visiting artists such as Bruno Taut and Kurt Schwitters, and left-wing politicians and members of the Dutch Communist party. Their interests stretched beyond art and politics to include spirituality (in particular, Theosophy), meditation, free love, and women’s rights. These were the people to whom Truus Schröder looked for intellectual and artistic stimulation, but theirs was a world far removed from Utrecht and the Biltstraat apartment, with its heavy, dark furniture, and high-ceilinged, formal rooms, in which she spent her days as the wife of a successful lawyer.

(Alice Friedman, Women and the Making of the Modern House)

Then Truus, after her husband’s death, goes on to commission this amazing fucking house from this really unique architect, Gerrit Rietveld. 

This house was revolutionary, and basically everything in it allowed for the house to be used for whatever purpose Truus might need it for, since she entertained lots of visiting artists and left-wing politicians. 

There are no rooms, basically. There are all these sliding partitions that let her switch up the layout.

She also wanted this because she wanted her three kids to be involved in the arts and exposed to these creative leaders. 

Another awesome thing is that her daughter, Han, went on to be an architect who taught in American universities, and was a big part of the house’s restoration in the 80s.

I could go on but I gotta get back to my paper.

But it’s pretty cool shit.
