Prominent Sudanese Feminist Passes Away

Ibrahim was the first female parliamentarian in Sudan.

By Mohammed Amin


Prominent Sudanese feminist Fatima Ahmed Ibrahim died Saturday at the age of 84.


She died at a hospital in London and her body will be flown to the capital Khartoum on Sunday for burial.


Born in 1933, Ibrahim was the first female parliamentarian in Sudan when she was elected as a member of parliament in 1965.


In 1991, she was elected as the chairperson of the International Women's Democratic Union. Two years later, she was awarded by the UN Human Rights Council for her humanitarian efforts.


In 2006, Ibrahim won the Ibn Rushd Prize in recognition of her struggle for promoting women's rights and social justice in Sudan and the Arab region. -
