When Moushira Mazloum was appointed mukhtara of Brital's Hay al-Teen in 2004, she was the first woman to assume the role, she said.If her local popularity is any indication, she's very good at her job.Once inside, Mazloum said she discovered a scheme intended to block her application.A call soon came, and the official supervising Mazloum answered the phone. "When he finished his call I looked him straight in the eye and told him, I am using the back of the page to write another essay in French". An energetic woman despite her 67 years, Mazloum was sweeping the steps leading to her front door when The Daily Star arrived. Hardly a moment passes in Mazloum's company without her cracking a joke, making herself and anyone around her erupt with laughter.
