Sneak Peek — Women of Abu Dhabi


I had the opportunity on this last trip to meet with four ex-pat women at once, all living in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.  We met and talked at the gorgeous Fairmont Abu Dhabi with the Grand Mosque just beyond the creek….Stunning. A look at the four women: Philippa, Karen, Nicola and Julie.

Nuria — Lahore, Pakistan

Nuria on Face Time

“The women here are so strong, so amazing…My mother in law went to Harvard Law at age 40. I find in my circle of friends that women’s rights are always discussed. However, sometimes I get a bit irritated,” Nuria continues. “As a woman, you get a lot of attention here whether you want it or not. The attention acts like an infringement on my freedom. Men stare so much that one does not feel comfortable going alone.”
