Source of Publication
ACM SIGCSE Bulletin
This article is a personal reflection on the culture and the education of young women in the United Arab Emirates, a group of seven emirates along the Persian Gulf, which has only been a federated nation since 1971. The rapid pace of development in the UAE and the desire of the rulers to educate women to become leaders in the country's workforce were the impetus for the creation of Zayed University in 1998. The social impact of introducing computer laptops and Internet access for all students is described.
