Chairperson of Omani Women’s Association, Seeb
Almighty Allah endowed Oman with women’s empowerment during the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said’s Blessed Renaissance. Women could act as partners with men across sectors that fits with their nature, abilities and skills.
Therefore, this day assumes great significance for every Omani woman because it makes them feel recognised. It is an incentive to exert more efforts to work for the progress of their country. It renews women’s sense of responsibility towards their families and their society because the one who gave them confidence expects them to be responsible and worthy of realising what is expected of them.
Women in Oman are keen to have legal and social awareness to protect their rights and ensure a balanced life. Women are expected to focus on religious aspects too to lead a sound life based on the principles of decent living. In this way, women can become a shield for the nation that secures the future of coming generations.
