AMMAN — Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah met with women from the ‘Sayyidat Nashmiyyat' group on Wednesday to highlight the active role of online platforms in pushing communities towards positive change, and creating better informed and socially engaged societies.

Established in 2015, ‘Sayyidat Nashmiyyat' is a Facebook group that includes more than 40 thousand active members, who engage online with a variety of topics including education, women's issues, childcare, health, and community empowerment.

During the meeting, which was held at Kan Zaman Restaurant in Amman, Her Majesty learned about the group's activities and heard from its Founder, Ms Enas Shahin, about the group's ongoing vision and strategies. Shahin noted that the organization has been working to engage Jordanian women in social media, and teach them to use online platforms in a positive manner that can drive change within their communities.

Addressing the group's members, Queen Rania said she was proud to learn about the group's active role in promoting responsible social media engagement, and providing a narrative to counter negative ideas that have become widpread on social media platforms.

Her Majesty thanked the women for their role in creating an ongoing discussion about education on social media, highlighting the need to ensure that quality education becomes a national priority so that Jordan can reclaim its reputation for excellence in education.

Queen Rania added that this begins with training and equipping teachers with modern teaching skills, and developing better curricula to improve students' understanding.

Shahin described ‘Sayyidat Nashmiyyat' as a women's forum that aims to raise women's awareness about the power of their online role in addressing Jordan's ongoing challenges.

The group's efforts have so far been successful in fighting racism and the incitement of violence, while promoting an inclusive society through respect for all regardless of differences in faith, political views, and ethnicity.

The meeting included remarks by several women, who shared their experiences since joining the group, and briefed Her Majesty on an online survey they conducted to examine the role that teachers, curricula, and school environment have on education outcomes.
