Egypt's ambassador in Sweden Alaa Hegazi honouring Swedish author Ann Edelstam

On the eve of International Women’s Day, the Egyptian embassy in Sweden, represented by Egyptian Ambassador in Stockholm Alaa Hegazi, had the pleasure to host the Swedish author Ann Edelstam to talk about her book, Three Ladies in Cairo.

Edelstam's book narrates the beautiful story of three generations of Swedish women living in Egypt during the 20th century: Grandmother Hilda, mother Ingrid, and daughter Ann Edelstam.


After Edelstam presented her book, an interesting discussion started on themes of social change, history, and culture.

During the evening, Ambassador Hegazi expressed his appreciation for Edelstam's creative contribution and presence, as well as to all guests who were present at the event.

“On this special day that marks the celebration of women worldwide, the Egyptian embassy would like to celebrate all creative women and their innumerous contributions to making this world a better place,” said Hegazi.
