26 Sep UAE Empowering women globally
I live and love living in the UAE and today’s post is the reason why.
In line with the directives of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak to empower women globally, the iconic Burj Khalifa tower joined landmarks around the world and saw its lights half turned off to symbolise the power lost when the world excludes women and girls.
This was part of the HeForShe global initiative with UN Women and MorePowerfulTogether.
