- Mrs. Pascale Warda participate in the workshop on strengthening the stability process in Iraq
Mrs. Pascale Warda, Chairwoman of Hammurabi Human Rights Organization HHRO, Former Minister of Migration and Displaced, member of Iraqi Women's Network, participated in the workshop on strengthening the stability process in Iraq.
The workshop was held by Heartland Alliance Organization on 1/8/2018 in Erbil to find out how to involve minority women in Peace building and political and economic decision-making.
Mrs. Warda started by presenting a brief explanation on the importance of using all means to support stability and peace in Iraq, including the participation of Iraqi women in the political and economic process and decision-making in general.
The Chairwoman of HHRO referred to the struggle of Iraqi women, including minority women who were pioneered in the imposition of the Women role in many fields such as education, medicine and nursing and even in the media and the demand for equality between men and women since the beginning of the twentieth century.
However, they continue to suffer from the fact that they are Iraqi women and the methods used by the masculine style in politics to avoid the competition of women with men, as well as being minority women. This is another facilitation for their men to steal their rights. Politicians play on emotions to convince people and reinforce the right of their superiority over women as the only ones capable of solving crises in the exceptional situations in which the country is going through, and the worst and most ironic is that they consider themselves the right in the political and administrative center because they are males !!.
No matter how women are in the minorities if they are not imposed by other parties, they cannot take their positions. We saw this during the period from 2003 till now, where the number of female ministers decreased from 6 to 0 and then to 1 and recently 2 only when the decision in the hands of the parties and influential Iraqis.
Mrs. Warda confirmed: I am sure that the United Nations has the fundamental role of imposing a minority woman in the first Iraqi government when the establishment of the interim government in 2004-2005 in light of the great obstacles put forward by the movements of the Christian minorities, for example. Therefore, the government must make its decision to implement the National Plan for the implementation of resolution 1325 a serious matter to benefit women from the benefits of this resolution on the consolidation of peace and security and the involvement of women in those operations, which will end and be replaced by resolution 2242 to promote the security of women.
The Iraqi authorities are called upon to search for possible solutions to their accumulated crises by putting forward all that promotes the development of peace and stability in Iraq, which requires changing corrupt tools with non-corrupt tools and women in general do.
