• LOCATION 19 | Tales of the Past: Tracing Dubai’s origins in Deira

    Professor Rafia Obaid Ghubash

    We’re ducking down another alleyway here. Look out for it on your right, just ahead.

    The Women's Museum is a little further along this alley. It was founded by Professor Rafia Obaid Ghubash, whose achievements are impressive in their own right. Professor Ghubash holds a PHD in epidemiological psychiatry from London University. She was Dean of the Al Ain Medical School. Later in her career, she was also President of The Arabian Gulf University. She’s also worked to empower women in the country, and to break down gender stereotypes.

    Keep going straight.
