Tammuz Organization for Social Development Participates in Iraqi women Network periodic Meeting


On Thursday 4/4/2019, Tammuz Organization for Social Development participated in the Iraqi women network periodic meeting at the headquarters of Al-Amal Iraqi Association in the presence of our female colleagues the members of the network. And that was to discuss the following:

 -To See the list of issues and preparations for the writing the shadow report of CEDAW covenant and assigning tasks and responsibilities.

-The networks efforts to accelerate the formatting of the National Council to empower women.

The meeting began when the network coordinator gave a speech welcoming our colleagues attending and she stated the meeting was devoted to informing the organizations and their representatives on the most focal steps that had been made to write the shadow report of CEDAW covenant. She also said that during the previous month, the network had an international participation with the CEDAW committee in Geneva and the network female members had had delivered an oral statement at the meeting  with a special issues note prepared by the network, which included the most important challenges facing the CEDAW covenant, in addition to a group of questions  addressed  by the committee to the Iraqi government, Our colleagues, that attended the meeting in Geneva,  kindly made a detail view of the participation.

Affirming that the delegation was lucky enough in terms of the permitted time, the participating colleague showed the most important details and stated that our intervention lasted for ten minutes while the time permitted to the other countries ranged between 3 to 5 minutes. She also mentioned that we as a network had had directly and clearly pointed out women’s status declining especially in political decision-making centers due to what women had been in harassment, we also pointed the encroaching of Human rights Commission and IHEC for the absence of female representation.

Yazidi women, their suffering and status in the aftermath of their liberation from ISIS was also discussed.  There was a proposal on the necessity to amend the laws in was that achieves improvement for the status of Yazidi women and their children.  It was clarified on how it is necessary to practice our role as organizations in terms of providing reports on rape and to start collecting pieces of evidence and subsequently submitting them to the International investigation team , who despite being fresh and at the beginning of their work, but we must collaborate with them in addition to the development of proposals and submitting them.

In order to have a deeper understating on Yazidi women’s status, there was a proposal to form a team of the network members to directly meet the survived women and learn about their stories and engaging them in-laws amendments so they can be suited to their needs and the development of the plans needed to re-integrate them in the society.

All the participants stressed on communication and on working on the tasks handled by the organizations and their representatives during the previous meetings to proceed to prepare reports and submitting them within the time limit , which would appreciate the active participation of Iraq and having it documented through committees and concerned bodies to enhance the reports with  credibility and to be formally adopted.
