On the occasion of Emirati Women’s Day.
UAE leaders have paid rich tributes to women as the country’s ministries, government departments and private companies rolled out a string of activities for the Emirati Women’s Day.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said “everything beautiful in our lives has a female fingerprint”.
“The word ‘life’ (in Arabic) is feminine. Civilisation is feminine. Written words, poetry verses and beautiful wishes are all feminine. A woman is a gentle friend and companion, and a sincere teacher. God bless you all, princesses. May you continue shining with beauty, greatness and inspiration,” the UAE Vice-President tweeted.
“On Emirati Women’s Day, we celebrate women as a sister, partner and supporter of the country’s development. I dedicate special wishes to the mothers, wives and daughters of the martyrs. I thank the mother of the nation, Sheikha Fatima, for her support, empowerment and encouragement to Emirati women.”
His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, said the UAE’s celebration of women is a celebration of a “fundamental partner who works hand in hand with men towards the journey of building and developing our nation”.
“Women in the UAE have passed the stage of contributing to the development and progress to becoming achievers, who raise the status of our nation. On Emirati Women’s Day, we renew our confidence in their potential and role in adding more progress to the country’s balance,” Sheikh Mohamed tweeted. “On this occasion, we remember stories of loyalty, willpower and solid determination of the inspiring mothers of the martyrs. They are the icons of giving, who taught the coming generations the greatest lessons of sacrifice and patriotism.”
