The Kurdistan Regional Government is steadfast in ensuring that all women are treated equally and respected. The 9th KRG Cabinet, in collaboration with the KRG High Council of Women’s Affairs, has adopted different measures such as the institution of a helpline for victims of violence as well as partnership with UN Women Iraq and other civil society organisations to spread awareness about the rights of women.
Here is the statement by President Nechirvan Barzani on this important day:
On International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, we denounce all forms of violence and abuse against females. We remain committed to protect and support women rights, and end gender-based violence.
