Women’s Museum – shaping the future of a country

About Women’s Museum

Any country which respects women becomes 10 times richer than any other country. It’s the women who are the power of a country or a place. In shaping the future of a country, Women have always played an important role and in honour to share their powerful stories, the Women’s Museum in Dubai was constructed. The museum paints a distinctive picture of Emirati ladies and commends a large number of their accomplishments.

Who founded the Women’s Museum?

Dr Rania Obaid Ghubash founded the Women’s Museum. An Emirati woman herself, Dr Ghubash grew up on the shores of Dubai Creek. Her mother taught her to value the history and culture of her home country, and this love permeates in the museum. It is far from a clinical look at the past, but instead, a loving tribute to a precious lineage of strong Emirati women.
