Women are a main contributor to the advancement of nations. Their role has seen them playing a major part in socio-economic development, strengthening communities, and inspiring future generations in actively participating in the nation building.

With the guidance of the UAE’s wise leadership, and the immense support of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak – Mother of the Nation -, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation and President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, new avenues are opening up to women every day. We witness women pursuing their dreams, evolving their role within the society and vastly participating to UAE’s sustainable development. Our leadership continues to recognize the importance of the role women play in leading generations onto the righteous path, as well as moving the communities to excel with each day that passes.
International Women’s Day provides the chance to appreciate all the women - the mothers, sisters, leaders, doctors, teachers, and others - who serve our nation and who push boundaries every day. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to them, and wish them the best of health and happiness on this day…as well as every other day.
