Women's Empowerment


Women Empowerment Unit

The Women's Empowerment Division is one of the most important divisions that seeks to eliminate all manifestations of discrimination against women through mechanisms that help them to become self-reliant and empower them by making development more understanding and participatory between men and women. Therefore, development is not just social care for women, but rather social development aimed at empowering women. Women possess the elements of economic and social strength to enable them to be self-reliant, continuously improve their situations, and participate in decision-making. The Women’s Empowerment Department was created in the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research according to Ministerial Order No. (14) on 1/5/2021 to follow up on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution (1325), and a Women’s Empowerment Division was created in all universities and formations associated with the Ministry according to Ministerial Order No. 479 on 7/6/2021.


Preparing women to be effective in achieving sustainable development in a nation that guarantees them all their constitutional rights and making them capable of dealing with challenges and enhancing their role in all fields.
