“Enhancing the role of female MPs in Bahrain, the UAE, Oman and Kuwait will be the focus of a seminar in Abu Dhabi on Monday. It is taking place at the General Women’s Union as part of a regional project to empower women.

The project is being spearheaded by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and also aims to establish an Arab women parliamentarians’ forum, bring gender issues onto the agendas of Arab parliaments and sow the seeds of equal participation at the national level.” LINK
