Empowering women - public sector - private sector


Women are still governed by social customs and traditions that have a negative impact on women's economic empowerment, as evidenced by the fact that women do not have a large economic project of their own so as to reduce their role by the conservative traditions of society. The constituents for women's empowerment remain unclear because of the uncertainty in the implementation of plans and strategies for the qualification, training and education of women in order to rid them of the triad of poverty, ignorance and deprivation. The economic and political empowerment of women in Iraq is an absolute necessity that cannot afford to be postponed, because women are an important element in the strategy of state power. The participation rate of Iraqi women in the economic and political field is still low, especially since their right is reserved in the legislative aspect but is incomplete in the executive aspect. In addition to the existence of many challenges faced by women, foremost among which is the security situation, the absence of law, the disruption of infrastructure and inequality between women and men, and after the events of April 9, 2003, there were wide participations of Iraqi women as they were able to prove their worth through their entry into work in various fields and ministries and the development of senior and secondary administrative positions.
