Women’s History Month is an annual celebration of groundbreaking achievements and tremendous efforts by women and girls, men and boys, around the world in shaping a more inclusive global community. It is also a call to accelerate concerted efforts to fully realize gender equality.

Every day the UAE celebrates the trailblazing women and girls who are breaking glass ceilings while the evolution of laws and policies are unlocking the potential for women and girls to advance their role in Emirati society. This is because we recognize that when we lift up women, we lift up everyone.

During the UAE’s term on the UN Security Council in 2022-2023, it will remain a key priority to advance women’s equal and meaningful participation, not only within the Council, but in all our efforts.
