The UAE Cabinet made it compulsory for corporations and government agencies to include women on their board of directors.

The role of women in the United Arab Emirates has advanced greatly in recent years making the UAE a leader in women’s rights in the Arab world. Though there were few opportunities for women outside the home before 1960, the discovery of oil led to advancement in women’s position. The UAE constitution guarantees equality between men and women in areas including legal status, claiming of titles, and access to education.
