“Jordanian Judge Ihsan Zuhdi Barakat has broken the glass ceiling as the first-ever female judge in the kingdom’s Supreme Court, Jordanian news agency Petra reported on Thursday.

In the Judicial Council’s recently-announced promotions, the Amman Court of Appeal judge has been promoted to the Supreme court, becoming the first Jordanian woman to ever reach the highest position in the judiciary.

According to Jordan Times, Barakat has already made huge strides as a woman in the field of law, as she was the first woman in the kingdom to serve as Amman’s attorney general, the first to chair the West Amman Court, and the first to be appointed as an inspector at the Judicial Inspections Directorate.

That’s not all. She has previously worked as a judicial inspector and appeal judge at the Amman Court of Appeal, as well as a president for the Legal Network for Arab Women, which is a regional non-governmental and non-profit organization that supports Arab women working in legal professions.”
