Stamps commemorate role of women in UAE

DUBAI // Commemorative stamps have been released by the Emirates Post Group to celebrate the role played by women in the growth of the nation.

The stamps have been issued in five designs and cost Dh3 each, along with a cover priced at Dh16. They can be purchased from the Women’s Museum, near to the Gold Souq.

Emirates Post’s release is part of its strategy to promote the UAE’s major developments and milestones through stamps, which are in great demand among collectors.

A ceremony at the Women’s Museum marked the commemorative release and was attended by Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, Minister of Labour Saqr Ghobash and representatives of Emirates Post, including Fahad Al Hosani, acting chief executive.

Mr Al Hosani said the stamps highlighted the significant role played by UAE women in the country’s progress.

“Emirates Post Group is very pleased to join hands with the Women’s Museum to celebrate its uniqueness through these special stamps,” he said.

“The stamps reflect just some of the key elements of the museum, which is packed with historic documentations and images that take visitors back in history to trace the progress made by UAE women over the past few decades.

“We are confident that the stamps will spark greater interest among residents and tourists to visit the museum.”
