Do You know?

The world's first University was founded in Africa (Morocco 🇲🇦)  by a woman?

Fatima bint Muhammad Al-Fihriya Al-Qurashiya (فاطمة بنت محمد الفهرية القرشية‎) founded the world’s first university in 895 CE in Fez, which is now in Morocco 🇲🇦. She is more usually known simply as Fatima al-Fihri. She established the University of Al Qarawiynn using her share of her father's wealth she inherited with her sister. The university started as a large mosque and later grew into a place of education.
