The UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will display 30 photographs of Emirati women to observe the International Women's Day as part of the UAE Gender Balance Council's (UAEGBC) 'UAE's Women Face Print' exhibition.

You'll find a rare painting of Her Highness Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, spouse of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai at the heart of the display.

The ladies-centric collection of photos is fully focused on featuring the lifestyles in the beginning of the Emirates before the foundation of the Union.

H.H. Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of the UAE Gender Balance Council, President of the Dubai Women Establishment and wife of Sheikh H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, said: "Exploring the stories behind each unique and inspiring photograph transports us to the past with all its details and simplicity in celebration of the strength and resilience of the Emirati spirit, while also documenting the vital role that women played in shaping our history."

She added that each collection has been attributed to a meaningful word in the Emirati dialect to shed light on the Emirati spirit. There’s a narrative behind each of the four collections of photographs, but the photographs have one main purpose, which is to document the vital role that women played in shaping our history.

For her part, Mona Al Marri, Vice-President of the UAEGBC and Director-General of the Government of Dubai Media Office, said that Expo 2020 Dubai is the perfect platform to give a tribute to Emirati women.
