The study aims to focus on her contribution in those aspects, as she played an important role in shaping such aspects in both sultanate, where a remarkable difference was witnessed according to the differences the sultanates themselves. Perhaps these differences might be attributed to the social and cultural factors in which women had lived during that era.
