Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI)

Since the aftermath of the 2003 Iraq war, the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq has served as a strong feminist voice for secular democracy, gender equality, and human rights. In particular, OWFI has worked to protect women facing violence and discrimination, including tribal misogyny, sex trafficking, and sectarian violence. Its shelters provide critical refuge and healing spaces for women, young women, and children who are survivors of kidnapping, trafficking, rape, and abuse. OWFI also builds power: providing training and peer networks so that more women can act as bold advocates for gender equality while also building support among the Iraqi public for women’s human rights.
