In 2003, she was appointed to office by President Hosni Mubarak, becoming the first woman to hold a judiciary position in Egypt, and she remained the only female on the bench until 32 other Egyptian women were appointed to various judicial positions in 2007.
In July 2012, The New York Times wrote that Supreme Constitutional Court Vice President Tahani al-Gebali advised the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces not to cede power to civilians until a constitution was written. This was denied by Judge al-Gebali, who announced she would sue the newspaper.
