She is marginalized and not allowed to occupy many jobs due to the dominance of masculine society.  She is also subject to domestic abuse and have no protection from the government or local police or organisations. Discrimination based on sex and gender is not included in the definition of discrimination in the UAE’s 2015 anti-discrimination law.  Federal Law No. 28 of 2005 regulates personal status matters. Some of its provisions discriminate against women. For a woman to marry, her male guardian must conclude her marriage contract; men have the right to unilaterally divorce their wives, whereas a woman must apply for a court order to obtain a divorce; a woman can lose her right to maintenance if, for example, she refuses to have sexual relations with her husband without a lawful excuse; and women are required to “obey” their husbands. A woman may be considered disobedient, with few exceptions, if she decides to work without her husband’s consent.
