UAE Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi: Every Day is Women's Day

A UAE Sheikh Declares Every Day International Women's Day


His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, had a special message for the women of the United Arab Emirates on International Women's Day.

He delivered an open letter to the "sisters and daughters of the UAE" explaining that March 8 shouldn't be the only time we recognize the importance women play in our society.

Read the full letter below:

"Our confidence in you and our optimistic country is so strong, you are the ones who build it alongside our men. You have raised global competitiveness and furthermore you continue to follow the blessed steps of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may God have mercy upon him), the founding father of the United Arab Emirates, as he believed in the capabilities of the women of the UAE and their important role in the implementation of its comprehensive development plans.
"On this special day when the world celebrates women's achievements, I cannot emphasize enough to UAE mothers, UAE employees, UAE students, that every day in the UAE is Women's Day, supported by the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE - "God save him".

"God bless our beloved country, and preserve our security, safety and stability. God bless His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, with health and happiness."
