Abstract

An Instagram post by hand of an Emirati illustrator garnered significant attention: the image represents a Muslim woman from an unusual perspective, rather defiant and avant-garde.

The illustration is bold because it portrays Emirati women as ambitious and career-driven, contenders of social norms. The artwork symbolizes a changing United Arab Emirates (UAE), where young citizens challenge patriarchal values and redefine norms, and it is representative of the shifting dynamics in Emirati society.
