A 'gilded cage': What happened to Dubai's missing princesses?
Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai and his wife are locked in a child custody battle in the UK, and the case could shed light on the fate of Dubai's missing princesses.
The benighted ruler of Dubai presents his city as modern but he locks up his adult daughters if they dare show a modicum of independence. Now his London custody battle over two younger children is revealing this ugly reality.
If this is happening to princesses - who live in wealth and privilege - what is happening to less privileged women in the #UAE? What is happening to domestic workers? What is happening to women who don’t have the means to escape?
