Dubai, Sep 26 (IENews) The iconic Burj Khalifa in Dubai turned half its lights off yesterday to put across a strong message for women empowerment.
Dubai is supporting the HeForShe aim to achieve gender equality.
HeForShe is a solidarity campaign for the advancement of gender equality, initiated by the UN.
The aim is to achieve equality by encouraging all genders as agents of change and take action against negative stereotypes and behaviours, faced by people with feminine personalities/genders, Khaleej Times reported.
It was UAE’s participation in the global #HeForShe campaign, following the directives of HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation and President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood.
