UAE to have first female marriage officer

posted on 14/11/2008: 726 views

The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) today named Fatima Saeed Obeid Al Awani, 33, as the first female marriage officer.

The ADJD said yesterday that Al Awani, a holder of BA of Sharia and Law from the UAE University in 2000, would go down the history as the first woman to hold the position in the UAE and the region and the second in the world and Muslim countries after Egypt.

The breakthrough move, the ADJD said, would boost the drive of engaging the woman in all positions fitting her nature according to local working laws without violating the Islamic Sharia law.

The ADJD has earlier named the first two female prosecutors in the country; a move followed the appointment of Kholoud Al Dhahiri as the first woman judge in the UAE. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
