Mother of the Nation Pavilion

The Mother of the Nation Pavilion takes visitors on a journey through time, introducing the inspiring accomplishments of HH Sheikh Fatima bint Mubarak, Mother of the Nation, and the women of the United Arab Emirates.

HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, wife of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE, is a pioneering female leader. As “Mother of the Nation” she strives to protect the rich history and traditions relating to the women of the UAE and to empower and support women and children across the world.

The Pavilion is at the heart of the festival and explores the impact that Emirati women have had on the country throughout history. The showcase traces the visionary thinking of HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, and how her initiatives helped shape the eminent position that UAE women enjoy in the society, economy and government today.

This warm and inviting exhibition space is a must-visit for all attendees to the festival. Get inspired by the legacy of Her Highness, as we celebrate the Year of Zayed.
