Ep15 Gov Gameas

The UAE, Dubai and equality for women have come a long way in the last twenty years- with the establishment of initiatives, and a great push from the UAE's leaders to ensure that its residents live not only a prosper lives but manage at a continuous growth in all sector of living.

A report by the UAE Embassy shows how the Emirati women have progressed in the academic, career and many other sectors.

But that doesn't mean it ends there, thanks also, in part, because of the supportive community in the region. More and more organisations and initiatives are being set up to empower further, include and elevate Emirati women's' standing in the UAE.

One such example of this is the outstanding number of women who participated in this year's Gov Games, 80% to be exact.
