This August will mark the seventh annual Emirati Women’s Day which was launched by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Al Ketbi, the wife of the late Sheikh Zayed and Mother of the Nation, in 2015.
With the day fast approaching, here’s everything you need to know about Emirati Women’s Day for 2022.
When is Emirati Women’s Day?
Emirati Women’s Day is a reoccurring event on August 28 every year. This year it will fall on Sunday, August 28, 2022.
When was the day launched?
Emirati Women’s Day was first launched by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Al Ketbi, known as the Mother of the Nation, in 2015. The choice of August 28 as the date coincides with the founding of the UAE’s General Women’s Union which launched in 1975, on August 28.
What is this year’s theme?
Back in April, Sheikha Fatima announced the theme of this year’s Emirati Women’s Day would be ‘Inspiring Reality… Sustainable Future’.
Upon announcing the theme for 2022, Sheikha Fatima praised the women of the UAE saying “Emirati women have proven that there is no task that is impossible, due to their hard work and innovation”, per WAM.
Since the inception of the UAE in 1971 under the leadership and guidance of the late Sheikh Zayed, women’s empowerment continues across the nation and this year’s Emirati Women’s Day will highlight this.
The prosperous and bright future of Emirati women will also be exemplified this Emirati Women’s Day.
