Connecting Modern and Ancient Egypt by Anne Aly
Born in Alexandria, Anne Aly moved from Egypt to Australia with her family at the age of two. In her late twenties, she was a single mother of two young boys, relying on minimum-wage work and social services benefits to put food on the table. She went on to study her Masters and PhD and worked as an academic, professor and practitioner in counter terrorism and countering violent extremism. Anne was the only Australian representative to speak at President Obama’s 2015 White House summit on countering violent extremism. Anne has been the Federal Member for Cowan since 2016.
In 2021, she was awarded the McKinnon Prize for Emerging Political Leader of the Year in recognition of her Parliamentary work against both right-wing extremism and family & domestic violence. Following the election of the Albanese Government, Anne was appointed Minister for Early Childhood Education and Minister for Youth – becoming the first Muslim woman to serve as a Commonwealth Minister."
