Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, the Sharjah Ruler's wife, paid tribute on Monday to UAE President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan for his continuous support for the development and education of women and for their engagement in the public life sphere, according to Gulf News.
She also gracefully thanked Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the President's wife and Chairperson of the UAE Women's Federation, for choosing her as one of the pioneers of the Arab women movement.
“This honor places me before a greater responsibility towards our community. I thank my sister Sheikha Fatima for honoring me and I hope I would live up to her expectations,” Sheikha Jawaher said with regards to the occasion of the Arab Women's Day, which is due to take place on February 1st.
She emphasized that her role complements that of Sheikha Fatima’s in the service of children, women and the family as a whole.
Sheikha Jawaher urged members of the local community to carry out their responsibilities and protect the community against ‘alien effects.’ “Our society and families should be aware of their duties of protecting from the devastating strange phenomena,” she conveyed.
She also thanked Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Moham-med Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, for his enormous assistance to her in social and cultural work. (Albawaba.com)
