May 28, 2007


Sulaimaniyah, Kurdistan region (Iraq), -- The Kurdish province of Sulaimaniyah will host a conference under the name "Dua" on June 5 to discuss a draft law banning all forms of violence against women, to be referred to Iraqi Kurdistan region's parliament for debate, a civil society activist said.

"The body supervising the conference has set up media, legal and feminist ad hoc committees to come up with proposals to be discussed at the meeting," Najiba Mahmoud, a feminist and an organizer of the event, said on Saturday.

Bakhshan Zankana, the chairperson of the women's rights committee in the Kurdistan Parliament, told VOI "the committee has called on all advocates of women's rights to table their proposals on amendments to the personal status law and to submit them to the parliament's legal committee, which is currently considering the draft on prohibiting violence against women."

Dua Khalil Aswad. The teenager was dragged outside by 8 or 9 men and stoned for half an hour until she died.

"The draft will consider compulsory marriage, beating and female circumcision to be gender discrimination and violence against women," said Zankana.

The conference is named Doaa after the Yazidi girl executed by stoning last month in the area of Bahzani, Mosul, for converting to Islam and marrying a Muslim.
