Women in the UAE: Past and Present

'Women in the UAE: Past and Present'. Our second Middle Eastern Studies Forum in the 2015-2016 academic year. With Dr. Saeeda Al Marzooqi and Dr. Alia Al Bawardi. The Conference told the story behind the Women's Museum in Dubai. It took the audience through the journey of a historical and cultural platform that started with Professor Rafia Obaid Ghubash but became a phenomenon that brought a younger generation closer to understanding that heritage. Through stories of women of the Emirates, our guest speakers opened a window into their contributions in politics, art, poetry, business, education and other fields, and broke down stereotypes by revealing the extraordinary roles that women have played in defining their culture and shaping their society.
It was an honor to meet you dear doctors and to moderate this highly enlightening and most exciting session.
Thanking all our students for attending and participating in the QA session, our colleagues, our volunteers (Joudy and Maha), the MARCOM department, the External Relations department, the custodians, Tawasee catering for the amazing food, and certainly, our dean, Dr. Haitham Solh for his continuous support.
