“WOMEN IN OCCUPIED IRAQ” featuring Haifa Zangana.

She will be speaking about women and empire, the situation of Iraqi women under the current occupation and how their situation has changed since the invasion. This will be followed by a discussion/question period.

She will also introduce her new book Women on a Journey: Between Baghdad and London. “Zangana’s novel gives voice to the richness and complexity of Iraqi women’s experiences. Through their stories, the novel represents a powerful critique of the violence done to ordinary people by those who hold power both in Iraq and in the West.” More information about the book
