Irak — Violences systématiques contre les femmes et fillettes - films et débat

Women and girls in Iraq are suffering from systematic violence and a sustained assault on their human rights. In addition to being victims of the bombings and other attacks that put so many Iraqis in danger every day, they are also being targeted specifically because of their gender.
The International Rescue Comittee and Amnesty International have pleasure in inviting you to an afternoon of discussion and films on the theme "Trapped by violence : Women in Iraq"
