The role of Arab women is often perceived one-sided in Western countries.
In fact
this perception must be revised when looking at the achievements of women
in the United
Arab Emirates (UAE). The booming economy – one of the fastest growing
economies in the world –
demands for a well educated society. A 2005 Forbes list of „Women to Watch
in the Middle East“ included two Emirati women. Telling the success
stories of Emirati women in leadership positions will give exposure to the
West and serve to counterpoint existing prejudices about the opportunities
for women in the UAE.
