Ambassadors, heads of diplomatic missions and representatives of organisations advocating gender equality also attended the session in Brussels, Belgium.
The Supreme Council for Women (SCW) and Bahrain’s Embassy in Belgium co-organised the interactive session themed “Bahrain Women and 2030 Sustainable Development Goals”.
Ms Al Ansari shed light on Bahrain’s strides in promoting women’s rights and supporting their social role, in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
