Bahrain to mark 10th year of women’s council
Manama, December 7, 2011
A ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the Supreme Council for Women (SCW) will be held at the Bahrain International Circuit, Sakhir, today (December 7).
HRH Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, wife of His Majesty King Hamad and SCW president, will patronise the event under the theme "Bahraini Woman in Economic Development ... Partnership and Dedication".
Bahrain's First Lady will address the ceremony.
She will also open an exhibition highlighting young Bahraini women entrepreneurs and the crucial role they play.
Forty-five young businesswomen aged below 45 will take part in the expo and explain their creative ideas and work.
The SCW will also organise the Bahrain Women's Economic Forum tomorrow. It aims to highlight Bahraini women's role in promoting sustained economic development.
The national efforts to promote women's participation in this sector and opportunities for them to enter the private sector will also be highlighted.
The SCW, meanwhile, paid tribute to His Majesty for granting citizenship to 335 children of Bahraini women married to non-Bahrainis.
It also hailed Royal efforts to bolster women's status and promote them as worthy and key partners in the country's progress. – TradeArabia News Service
