Images of Women in the United Arab Emirates Mass Media

Amina Khamiz Al-Dahery

Abstract


Women of the UAE are rarely represented in the media except on some occasions such as the celebration of National Day. Few programs are aired on TV. and even fewer pages cover women's issues in the press though, educated UAE women are interviewed in the mass media for propaganda purposes. The general absence of women from television and the media can be attributed to the fact that the UAE mass media import almost all their programs, and that social traditions prevent
women from making appearances in the mass media.
