Honorary Luncheon Celebrates Lebanon’s Influential Women

On the occasion of Mother’s Day and International Women’s Month, an exceptional event took place to honor the accomplishments and contributions of Lebanese women. The gathering, which was arranged by the long-established Sayidati Magazine, was hosted at the prominent Villa Linda Sursock by Le Bristol for a number of social, artistic, and media personalities 


Lebanese women have been headlining national news for some time now. From heading 4 ministerial positions to commanding the skies and attaining the top mountains of the world, these trailblazers have been breaking barriers and making us proud in the process.

Sayidati (my lady) Magazine made it a point to celebrate the rising impact of our women. In collaboration with Le Bristol Hotel in Beirut, the magazine organized a celebratory luncheon, inviting Lebanon’s top influential ladies of their fields. 


Villa Linda Sursock was transformed into a glamorous venue of colorful flowers and extravagant centerpieces to receive the influential guests in all elegance.

The gorgeous Villa of Linda Sursock is located on Sursock Street, at the heart of one of the calmer areas of Ashrafieh. One of Beirut’s historic landmarks, Villa Linda Sursock is a perfect mixture of 19th-century Venetian style and Middle Eastern architecture. The restored palace is the ideal location to get a real sense of the pomp and grandeur associated with an aristocratic lifestyle.
