                Project "Combating violence against women
Project objective

Raising awareness about combating violence against women

Project activities

In response to escalating violence against women in Iraq due to lack of security and
non political stability, Baghdad Women’s Association used the support to organize 8
training workshops for 240 participants and arranging four one- hour radio programs,
in order to raise the awareness about combating violence against women, and
developing and maintaining the website of Baghdad Women's Association.

Training Workshops

The Association started the arrangement of eight workshops; each workshop includes
30 male and female participants representing social researchers, women leaders,
active groups in Human Rights field, and representatives of Ministry of Interior,
Ministry of Women Affairs, and Ministry of Human Rights. Participants will be
selected from the contact lists that are available in the Association due to the previous
contacts with local women NGOs and governmental institutions.
The workshops that will be held in secure locations in Baghdad will include
presentations, debates, and role-playing. Also, BWA will produce a documentary
film about abuse cases and violence against women. BWA will work closely with
Dr. Tammem Alazawey, a human rights activist, and Dr. Bushra Al-Oubaidi, a
university professor, to prepare the curriculum and select training material.
Workshop topics will cover: women rights in Iraqi constitution, discrimination
against women, definition of violence against women, forms and types of violence
against women, consequences of violence, CEDAW convention, advocacy
campaigns, and mobilization for legal reforms. BWA will compile minutes of the
workshop discussions and recommendations into one report.

At a later time, this report will be used as a platform for discussing various topics
which will be part of a radio program broadcasted by BWA. Also, BWA seeks to
build a working committee out of these training workshops that will focus on issue of
violence against women in Baghdad to conduct awareness and advocacy campaigns.

Radio Program

BWA will produce and broadcast four Radio Programs and each program will last
one hour in order to raise the awareness about violence against women. In each
Radio Program, BWA will invite a psychologist, a human rights expert, activist in
women Right field, and a political personality to express their views on violence
against women and respond to listeners' calls.             The program will cover
recommendations discussed in the workshops. BWA has initiated contact with local
radio station in Baghdad to book the studio and fixing the broadcasting period for the
radio program.
