Last night we not only celebrated the twelfth Emirates Woman Woman of the Year Awards, but also the 35th birthday of Emirates Woman magazine. One major night, two milestones.
During the evening we celebrated women in the UAE, in particular the achievements of 26 individuals, who inspired a room of 400 guests. There were happy tears, standing ovations and powerful words of inspiration that made us all the more certain that feminism is alive and kicking in the region.
During the evening we updated everyone of the evening’s events through social media (@emirateswoman) with Facebook Live videos, Instagram Stories, tweets and Insta posts. The evening’s hashtag was #EmiratesWomanAwards, which our guests also used to document the night.
As such we decided to give you a bigger insight in to the incredible night and show the best highlights from the #EmiratesWomanAwards, according to you…
A lot of prep went into the amazing array of outfits

We had a wonderful evening at the @emirateswoman Awards. Thank you for nominating our CEO Miranda Hilton “Parenting is one of the most uniting aspects across all cultures, practices and religions and with so much choice now in the market about ‘how to parent in the best way’, it can seem very overwhelming especially for first time parents. We would like the brands we represent and our online platform to be the trusted leader in each market it operates in, offering the very best of the best across all spectrums (product and service) to make parenting, if we can, just that little bit easier and lighter.” 👍 #business #familysoukventures #emirateswomanawards #nominee #awards #amazingwomen #futuregoals #parenting #trustedbrands
