  5. 5. Women Of Iraq<br />According to Dr. Rajaa Al Khuzai a Member of the Former (Governing Council of Iraq) women in the past had a unique status in society. They were treated as goddess in ancient times. The first woman minister in the Arab world and the Middle East was Iraqi, so were the first woman judge and first woman university professor, she claimed. Now things have changed. <br />Women in the Iraqi world are treated poorly, though they make up 65% of the population. Their rights are ignored. They are constantly discriminated against and belittled. <br />The Sharia law rules this country. The Sharia law is an Arabic word that’s means God’s law or Law of God. It is referred to with everything politics, business, economics, and banking. <br />95% of the population practices the Islamic faith. The Sharia law tells men that they can beat their wives openly, that their women should obey them, and that women are not worth as much as men. <br />Since the war started in 2003 women in Iraq who try to help women gain any type of social mobility have been targeted to be kidnapped, beaten, and even killed. Extreme groups hurt and kill women to force them to wear veils ( the symbol of submission, first signal of further repression to come). <br />
  6. 6. Women’s Rights in Iraq <br />One of the key issues in eliminating gender issues is the differences between the Nationalisms and the gender.<br />Article 14 of Iraq&apos;s new constitution, approved in a nationwide referendum held on October 15, states that Iraqis are equal before the law &quot;without discrimination because of sex.“ According to Isam al-Khafaji, an Iraqi scholar, the document could deprive women of their rights because the country is solely run by the rulings of Islam. <br />Most people in Iraq believe women rights should be limited because of the Sharia Law. <br />
  7. 7. Iraqi Women and Government <br />In 2003 women in politicswere helped when the war started between U.S. and Iraq. <br />Before then Suddam Hussein regime discriminated against women and their seats in the government reduced each year. <br />The women General Federation of Iraqi Women also known as the (GFIW) founded in 1969. by 2003 the women organizations that promoted women gaining more rights were being funded by groups involve with politics which always led to the focus and points of the organizations to change. <br />In 2005 women won 31% of the assembly seats. But they still face the challenge of installing equality laws for women. <br />
  8. 8. Women and Education <br />Women in Iraq have lost their right to education. <br />Many women and girls are help away from school because of traditional ties. The women who do attend school end up dropping out.<br />According to HAIFA ZANGANA the Director of Iraqi Committee for National Media and Culture three factors have contributed to this women’s struggle to survive the daily bloodshed, protect their families, and carry on with mundane tasks in their houses, second as a result of the destruction wreaked by the occupation and its policies on the country’s fund of culture and educational institutions, it is increasingly difficult to obtain an education, third the gender-oppressive policy of the collaborator’s government, with its use of sectarianism and obscurantist interpretations of Islam, insults women’s dignity and freedom of choice.<br />

  10. 10. Biblography<br />This article helped me with my gain knowledge about the Iraqi women and their education. It explained why the women were lacking education, and how education was not condoned because some traditional values had ruled against it.<br />Zangana, Haifa,InternationalJournal of Lifelong Education; Mar/Apr2008, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p153-168, 16p<br />This article told about the violence against women and how women are targets of extreme violent groups. It explains how the group use violent acts against woman to force women to wear veils. <br />Abdela, Lesley, Open Democracy, Iraq&apos;s war on women, July 17,2005<br />This article helped me understand what the war did for women. It explained how women had positive things happen for them because of United States invasion into Iraq, but then also how that made them targets to be hurt. <br />Al-Ali, Nadje, Third World Quarterly; Jun2005, Vol. 26 Issue 4/5, p739-758, 20p<br />
