Tribute to women’s role in progress

Manama: Bahraini Women’s Day will this year pay tribute to their contributions in the country’s progress.

The day is marked on December 1 every year and the celebrations are held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad.

The theme, Bahraini Women in the National Development… a March of Progress in a Dedicated Nation, was approved yesterday by Her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, wife of His Majesty and Supreme Council for Women (SCW) president.

Celebrations this year also coincide with the 20th anniversary of the SCW.

Bahraini Women’s Day 2021 also coincides with the kingdom’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of the National Action Charter, which paved the way for completing women’s political rights and the resumption of their active participation in public affairs.

In a statement marking the occasion, the SCW said the theme reflects the deep-rooted presence of Bahraini women in the nation-building process, and its gradual progress hand-in-hand with the development of the modern civil state in Bahrain, based on justice and equality in rights among the citizens, men and women.

The SCW said the King’s patronage reflected the royal pride in Bahraini women’s role in national development, which is progressing steadily thanks to the keenness of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince Prime Minister, to His Majesty’s directives to bring about progress and prosperity to Bahrain.
