The gov­ern­ment seeks to em­power Emi­rati women

The UAE Cabi­net has adopted a new pack­age of new na­tional leg­isla­tive poli­cies and ini­tia­tives aimed at em­pow­er­ing Emi­rati women.

In a spe­cial ses­sion chaired by Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Rashid Al Mak­toum, Vice Pres­i­dent, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, the Cabi­net ap­proved the em­pow­er­ment bun­dle in line with the di­rec­tives of UAE Pres­i­dent Sheikh Khal­ifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The new em­pow­er­ment pack­age is based on three prin­ci­pal ar­eas of Leg­is­la­tion and Pol­icy, Ser­vices, and In­ter­na­tional Rep­re­sen­ta­tion, state news agency WAM re­ported on Tues­day.

It said all ar­eas in­clude re­sources to sup­port the ad­vance­ment of Emi­rati women as ac­tive part­ners in both lo­cal, re­gional and global are­nas.

The new ini­tia­tives will see women’s in­creased par­tic­i­pat­ing in diplo­matic mis­sions, as well as an in­creased rep­re­sen­ta­tion in ju­di­cial and le­gal af­fairs.

“To­day, we have adopted a well-rounded pack­age of new poli­cies and leg­is­la­tion favour­ing Emi­rati women’s em­pow­er­ment and lead­er­ship,” the Dubai ruler said. “We are now em­bark­ing on a new phase.”
