The current study also aims to investigate the role of Social Service Institutions to empower women in the United Arab Emirates. The researchers randomly selected a sample of n= 60 respondents from three social welfare organizations in the UAE. The researcher employed One-Way Analysis of Variance and Multiple Regression Analysis to affirm any existing relationship between social service institutions, and women empowerment. Findings indicated a strong significant relationship between social service institutions, and women empowerment (p ≤. .000, p ≤. .001). The results also revealed that women from all the selected organizations are enjoying equal opportunities regales of their gender, nationalities, marital status, education, age, and workplace. Therefore, the respondents expressed a positive opinion regarding equitable rights distribution and appreciation from their workplaces. In this regard, the researcher recommends more studies highlighting the role of social service institutions concerning women and children's rights advocacy in the UAE.
