She paid a visit to the headquarters of the GWU this afternoon and lauded the role of the Union in empowering women to assume positions of leadership.

Bligh watched a documentary on the activities and achievements of the Union and toured the GWU headquarters accompanied by Nora Al Suwaidi, Director General Women's Union. She went around various sections including the Jewel Hall, where the shields and medals presented to Sheikha Fatima by Arab and international organisations in honour of her efforts to promote status of women, are showcased.
