Women's Museum - Dubai, United Arab, Emerates
Drats! None for men!This is the Middle East's first women's museum, founded in 2012 by Rafia Ghubash, one of the UAE's most influential women. "Women here were empowered a long time ago, but we haven't had a chance to tell our story," said Ghubash. "Don't think because we are covered we are not empowered,' she says. This new museum is a centre of documentation and exhibition which focuses on the historical and cultural roles of women in the UAE. It's concerned with every aspect of women's experience in literature, art, culture and heritage. It also aims to showcase the many facets of the daily lives of women of the UAE. This should make for a fascinating visit! Website: http://womenmuseumuae.com/index_e.html
