GREEN EURO MP: RIGHTS OF IRAQI WOMEN MUST BE DEFENDED

The elections in Iraq may be seen by some as a step forward, but the
jury is out on whether this is good news for women. London’s Green MEP,
Jean Lambert has called for action to end the atrocities, and support
women struggling to overcome oppression.

Jean, who was named MEP 2005 for Justice and Human Rights last year,
spoke alongside Houzan Mahmoud, UK Head of the Organisation of Women's
Freedom in Iraq (OWFI) and co-founder of the Iraq Freedom Congress, at a
seminar in the University of London Union on Sunday. Jean said; “The
elections in Iraq have not solved the ongoing problems there but seemed
to simply increase the power of an already established, male dominated
power structure. Women in Iraq are subject to sexual discrimination,
random attacks of violence, torture and supposed honour killings. To
overcome this violence they need both physical and financial support.

“Unable to involve themselves fully in society because of the dangers
they face everyday, many Iraqi women are being denied their basic human
rights. These actions are not part of a historical Iraq and do not
belong there today. This brutality has been encouraged over the last ten
years through activists pushing a certain version of Islam, but it is
not too late to change the situation and give women in Iraq the
opportunity to regain their freedom and equality.”

Jean continued to praise the work of OWFI and urged others to do what
they could: “With the rise of groups such as OWFI changes will slowly be
made but it is vital that the European Parliament and other groups
provide the necessary support to continue these developments.”

The seminar focused on Iraq and the current political situation there
in light of the ‘elections’. Along with Jean Lambert MEP and Houzan
Mahmoud the seminar heard from Nadia Mahmood, Iraq Freedom Congress and
Maria Exall, Communication Workers Union (CWU).
