10 ways to celebrate International Women’s Day in Dubai
Friday 8 March 2019 marks the annual International Women’s Day. Since it was established back in 1975, governments across the globe have united in support and appreciation for the social, economic and political milestones that have been achieved by women. Naturally, that makes it one of our favourite days of the year – and one that we believe should be celebrated in true style.
