Default Dubai for Women

Hi, My wife and I may have an opportuniy to move to Dubai. I may be getting a job there. MY wife has reservations as she believes women are poorly treated and are restricted from doing many things...From what I've rad the role of women in dubai is more involved now than before, can anyone give me the real picture?

The UAE is nothing like KSA!

In the UAE, women can drive, work and do pretty much anything they like. It's safe and really rather Western. As a career woman, in a rather male dominated industry, I have come across less restrictions than in London.

I agree with Elphaba. There is nothing my wife can't do here that she would do in the States. Except go to Target.....

Haha, yeah there are Taco Bell's (Hell) here. Don't personally miss them myself. I get my brisket taco fix here in JBR every now and then.

Target is first on the agenda when we go state-side. She loves it even though she hates to shop!

If she is on your sponsorship she needs your written permission to work, get a driving licence and buy alcohol. Other than that, no restrictions.
