No. Both are used. I've heard 'proved' on national broadcasts, but personally I tend to use 'proven'. It's mostly a matter of what you're used to. But if you're just learning, you are not in an environment where you hear one or the other more often, so you have nothing to go by. In that case, you may as well use the regular form 'proved' for the verb. You can save 'proven' for the adjective ('a proven fact').

Except for a small mistake, it's fine.

The Egyptian woman has proven throughout the ages that she is able to contribute to making progress.
