Emirati Women’s Day is annually celebrated on the 28th of August, since 2015. The date was deliberately picked as UAE’s General Women’s Union was launched on the same day in 1975. It is celebrated to memorialise the accomplishments achieved by the remarkable women in the nation in varying fields. Her Highness Sheikha Fatima stated the theme of this year is “Inspiring Reality.. Sustainable Future” (WAM, 2022). Alongside, Sheikha Fatima has also applauded Emirati women for their innovation and drive to break all stereotypes through immense hard work. To help all the exceptional women celebrate we have rounded up the most enjoyable ways for you to unwind so you are rejuvenated to get back on the grind.
