Such initiatives are vital in promoting women's economic success, happiness and well-being.

A lab to develop new legislations to support socio-economic participation of women has been launched by the Dubai Women Establishment (DWE), in collaboration with the Supreme Legislation Committee of Dubai.

The Women-Specific Legislations Lab, launched on Emirati Women's Day, will address various aspects related to women's development including their active inclusion in society, personal status law, women in the economy, the protection of women, and health and wellbeing.

Mona Al Marri, chairperson of the board of directors of DWE, said the lab will work to review and monitor the implementation of women-specific legislations and develop new legislations focused on women. "By monitoring possible discrimination in legislations and proposing alternatives, the initiative seeks to reinforce efforts to introduce new legislations that can enhance the emirate's global standing," she said.

Ahmed Saeed bin Meshar Al Muhairi, Secretary-General of the Supreme Legislation Committee of Dubai, said: "The lab will contribute to the continued development of Dubai's legislative structure in line with the UAE leadership's commitment to empowering women and enhancing their participation in all spheres."

He also highlighted the important role the initiative plays in introducing new legislations that address women's requirements and help fulfill their aspirations, while strengthening the legislative environment needed to empower women to be active partners in the nation's development.

Shamsa Saleh, CEO of DWE, said such initiatives are vital in promoting women's economic success, happiness and well-being. She also expressed her pride in the achievements of Emirati women.
