Yanar Mohammed - Activities in Iraq Since 2003 - Committee For The Defence of Iraqis Women's Rights

Committee For The Defence of Iraqis Women's Rights

Yunar Mohammed is the founder of Defense of Iraqi Women’s Rights (DWIR), which advocates full equality for Iraqi women through active involvement in political debate (gruber quote) DIWR aims to investigate into the status of Iraqi women with a focus on Kurdistan of Iraq ‘where the absence of supremacy of law resulted in giving way to ancient tribal practices against women encouraged by recent Islamist influences’. The activities of the committee are closely linked to the work of the Organization for Women’s Freedom in Iraq above, indeed the latter devotes web page space for the Kurdistan campaign.

Famous quotes containing the words rights, women, committee and/or defence:

    The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights that America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans.
    Malcolm X (1925–1965)

    Johnny Clay: You like money. You got a great big dollar sign there where most women have a heart. So play it smart. Stay in character and you’ll have money. Plenty of it. George’ll have it and he’ll blow it on you. Probably buy himself a five-cent cigar.
    Sherry Peatty: You don’t know me very well, Johnny. I wouldn’t think of letting George throw his money away on cigars.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)

    A committee is an animal with four back legs.
    John le Carré (b. 1931)

    There can be no defence like elaborate courtesy.
