Women, the Iraqi Constitution & the Politics of Empire

Women, the Iraqi Constitution & the Politics of Empire

A seminar organised by the Xenos Research Group, Department of Sociology

4.00pm – 6.00pm, Wednesday 17 May 2006
Room 141, Main Building,
Goldsmiths College, Lewisham Way, London SE14 6NW

Among the legal and political disputes surrounding the invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq - disputes concerning among other things US imperialism and UK involvement, the nature of the military resistance, and the importance of oil - comparatively little attention has been paid to the impact of the war and its aftermath on Iraqi society, and in particular on women. This workshop aims to redress this neglect and to take the situation of women in Iraq as a focus in its own right, as well as a prism through which to reconsider debates around the war. In particular, we wish to consider the manner in which the social and political space for women has been violently curtailed both by a 'democratic' constitution that defines their civil status in patriarchal and ethno-religious terms, and by an ongoing military conflict that functions as a vehicle for extreme forms of misogyny and oppression.

SPEAKERS

Iraqi Women's Struggle Against the Occupation and Political Islam
Houzan Mahmoud, Organisation for Women's Freedom in Iraq

Civility and Solidarity
Alejandro Colás, School of Politics and Sociology, Birkbeck College, University of London

Hello, I found your contact details on the Iraqi Freedom Congress site...and wanted to write to ask you to freely join our campaign for an end to the war in Iraq. Our global campaign, run from here in England is called ARMS AGAINST WAR.

We focus solely on ending the Iraq war for this campaign, as we find the majority of people the world over agree, that this war needs to end now - as a matter of the utmost urgency. www.armsagainstwar.info I have got the campaign onto US campuses and into anti-war/peace groups across various countries...but we need so many more to be truly visible and effective.

The campaign is about UNITY above all, unity in our opposition to this cruel and wrong war in Iraq. It is also about visibility and showing just how many of us want this war ended now. We don't want any money - just arms!!

We ask that all who agree with the statement...
"I want an end to the war in Iraq"
... show their agreement by wearing a home-made (free) white fabric armband whenever they can.

Many of us wear them at all times and in all places. Not an arrestable offence as there are no words and the symbol draws attention, it starts conversations, is an act of self empowerment that lifts us to a sense of activism - not just on marches, but every day and everywhere. On marches though, it is a symbol of our unity with all groups and individuals who also agree "I want an end to the war in Iraq".

I would love it if you could consider introducing and using the armbands in your community as it would make a world of difference and I feel strongly that it is with each of us individually that the solution lies - each of us is vital to this.

Thanks so much for your time and I do hope we can be together on this.

Assalamu Alaikum - Peace be upon you



Namaste,
Tina Louise

..................................
Two thousand years ago, a Roman Senator suggested that all slaves
wear white armbands to better identify them.
"No," said a wiser Senator.
"If they see how many of them there are, they may revolt."
