2014 Fellow
Women's Initiative Fellowship Program

Since October 2004, Asma has worked as a university professor in Tunisia, teaching “Sociology of Art,” “Analysis of Image,” and “Civilization and Communication.” She has also served as a researcher, studying “Image of the Women of Power in the Arab World” at the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research (CAWTAR).

Asma also works as a consultant on communication issues for large industrial groups. In the wake of the Tunisian Revolution, she advises small and large Tunisian political parties.

Asma created a small company dedicated to pet care and accessories, which employs many women.  This opportunity gives women a chance to work independently outside of large manufacturers and earn a more stable living. Her company is based on fair trade and aims to help women improve their incomes and start their own small businesses.

Asma attended both Sorbonne University and University Paris in France and holds two Master’s of Art Degrees in French Literature and in Modern Societies and Civilization, specialized in Cinema. Her university research in modern societies and cinema studied American television shows and their reach to countries outside of their native environment. She is currently finishing her Ph.D. thesis on “Semiotics of Intimacy In Surrealistic Literature.”
