The Arab Women Committee has announced Riyadh as the capital of Arab women for 2020 under the slogan “Women are a homeland and an ambition”, SPA reported.




The decision was taken at the 39th session of the Arab Women Committee, which was held on Monday in Riyadh under the umbrella of the Arab League.

The secretary-general of the Family Affairs Council, Dr. Hala bint Mazyad Al-Tuwaijri, said that the declaration of Riyadh as the capital of Arab women was due to the role that the Kingdom played at all levels, and its continued support for women’s empowerment.

The Arab Women Committee — chaired by Saudi Arabia for a year — discussed a number of issues, including the report of the General Secretariat’s activity between the previous and the current sessions, the 2030 agenda for sustainable development, women’s empowerment in the Arab world, and the follow-up to the recommendations of the Ministerial Conference that focused on women’s empowerment and its impact on social development.

The meeting also discussed mechanisms for cooperation with relevant international organizations, as well as reviewing the topics presented by member states.



The committee began its activities on Sunday with a regional preparatory meeting for the Commission on the Status of Women 64 (CSW), during which the results of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action after 25 years and the Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting Declaration were reviewed.
