You can watch the clip below, in which the three women could be seen smiling repeatedly as if it's the most natural thing in the world, much like European or American female or male TV presenters would smile on camera. The repeated smiling and shattering of stereotypes about stern Arab and Muslim societies is testament to how much progress women in Lebanon have achieved, and many now expect female TV presenters from Morocco to Pakistan to start smiling and shattering stereotypes.
Most Arabs now await Western media to put this event in context for them because they're still not quite sure what to make of it, and they are now anxiously awaiting articles explaining what it means in American and European media outlets. It is expected that the video will go viral.
