Reham El Morally's PhD, Recovering Women’s Voices: Egyptian Women’s Strategic Gender Interests and Second Class Citizenship, focused on understanding gender dynamics in Egypt, specifically how and why Egyptian women have the de facto status of second-class citizens. She worked on multiple (inter)national projects, including the Newton Funded collaboration, on climate justice and resilience among indigenous communities, between the University of Reading and ASCOT University, Philippines. She additionally worked on the Institute of Education’s three-year longitudinal qualitative study, Student Experience in STEM project, which investigated gender, ethnic, and racial barriers which contribute to the increase of degree attainment/awarding gap among Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students at the University of Reading. She is a vehement advocate and activist for gender equality and equity, political and social freedom, and social justice and security.
