[size=52]Iraqi activists: Empowering women financially makes them more in control of their destiny and life[/size]

[size=45]Despite the changes witnessed by the reality of Iraqi society over the previous years, after 2003, women still suffer from “dualism” in dealing, by virtue of the norms and traditions that govern society, yet they continue to resist restrictions and obstacles and participate in social life and at all levels and in different sectors.[/size]
[size=45]simple steps[/size]
[size=45]In this regard, the head of the self-assessment team for culture and development in Basra, Dr. Hawraa Al-Moussawi, said in an interview with (Basnews), that “the changes that have occurred in Iraqi society in terms of the role of women are considered simple steps, but they have a significant impact on the general reality experienced by Iraqi women, She cited the presence of real women figures, who have influential roles in the intellectual and development fields, and even at the political level, who have influenced Iraqi society.[/size]

[size=45]Al-Moussawi believes that “women’s obtaining their financial independence helped them to be more in control of their lives and their destiny,” stressing by saying, “Had it not been for financial independence, half of society would not have developed,” and she means (women), noting that “empowering only one woman is a sufficient guarantee in and of itself.” By empowering an entire family, power when given to women contributes to building the correct and basic foundation for society as a whole, and this spares her the pity of parents and relatives, as she has the will to change in her hand.[/size]
[size=45]financial independence[/size]
[size=45]Hawraa believes, that “there is a strong link between women leaving the house and their obtaining financial and societal independence, because a person cannot develop and move to the other side if he does not engage in society and learn about its types,” indicating that “women’s financial independence opens up a new horizon for them that increases their her awareness and intelligence.[/size]

[size=45]According to Hawraa’s personal experience, she believes that “the main and main factor for overcoming obstacles is (developing oneself, expanding one’s perceptions, leaving trifles with small matters….) and striving for financial and functional independence, with the aim of achieving what one desires and desires.”[/size]
[size=45]According to the United Nations Development Programme, women in Iraq are allowed to work in certain sectors and in other sectors that are almost non-existent. For example, approximately (85%) of working women work in the public or government sector, while in the private sector the percentage may not exceed About (1%), and this indicates that there are still restrictions that restrict women from working, in addition to choosing a place of work.[/size]
[size=45]Outstanding role despite challenges[/size]
[size=45]And women’s rights activist, Ansam Salman, has a different opinion about society’s view of working women, as she told (Basnews) that “the role of women in the recent period has become prominent despite the multiplication of challenges,” noting that “the position of society at the present time towards women. Women aspiring to occupy high positions and women who went out to support men are better than before, and women have become supportive of each other, and this is another factor for the emergence of the role of women in society.”[/size]

[size=45]The activist believes, “One of the most important changes that occurred in the role of women is their equality with men in the workplace, because they do most of the work and jobs that men do.”[/size]
[size=45]And Ansam Salman continued, "Women, in terms of their empowerment and financial independence, depend on their self-challenge, their educational level, the environment in which they live, and to what extent they support them and their goals," noting that "women's economic empowerment makes women strong in making decisions and logical in controlling their destiny and providing for themselves and their family." And the more stable the financial side, the closer it will be to achieving its goals.[/size]
[size=45][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [/size]
[size=45]On the other hand, the activist stresses that “the deterioration of the country’s conditions as a result of wars and crises, the lack of governmental and societal support for many women and their exposure to mistreatment, and their suffering in the workplace and in the street, and some societies that are still clinging to primitive ideas, refrain from women’s role and capabilities and impose restrictions on them.”[/size]
[size=45]A study published by the National Democratic Institute in Washington and followed by (BasNews), on providing new opportunities for women, indicates that the social view of working women in Iraq varies according to the nature of regional, cultural and civil differences, as well as according to the nature of the changes that occurred in the social structure in Iraq during those three decades or more. Which made her retreat a lot from the implications of growth and development, and then there is the support and persistence of the negative view of working women in various fields and specializations, starting as a woman working in public markets and ending with being a worker, employee or teacher[/size]
