Abstract

In the few months preceding and following the occupation of Iraq, several US-funded Iraqi women’s NGOs were established in Washington. Their hastily staged
birth was deemed necessary to engage “important voices which were missing from the debate – those of Iraqi women with personal experience of Saddam Hussein's oppression.”2 It was a last minute rush to provide the much-needed moral legitimacy to the immoral invasion.
