BEIRUT: After achieving a record number of registered candidates in the upcoming elections and continuing to gain a footing in the workplace, for many Lebanese women, a question remains: Where does this progress leave motherhood?The conference was led by some of the region's most prominent women, including those who have mastered the art of balancing demanding careers with motherhood. It addressed the importance of sharing knowledge between women on the question of work and family.Self-declared Mom-Trepreneur, Yasmina Audi – founder of both Elle Fiesta and the organization that organized the event, Super Mama Lebanon – challenged the preconceived notion that women must choose between career and family.Audi recalled the beginning of Super Mama Lebanon in its incarnation as a personal blog, which later gained momentum and became what is now a virtual community of mothers who share knowledge on how to tackle everyday struggles.
