June 29, 2010 Petition from the Women’s Leadership Conference in Baghdad, Iraq. June 28, 2010.
We are group of women leaders from all of Iraq who belong to different political affiliations, tribes, and religions. We gathered on June 28th 2010, worried about what is happening due to the delay in reform from the new government, and the suffering of the Iraqi people from crisis in electricity, general services, and security.
Our demand to the decision makers is to consider the greater nation and the interests of the people to reach solution to the problems from which all Iraqi people suffer; a strategic, effective plan requires high national will and everyone’s efforts in order to solve these crises.
We are ready to put our experiences and efforts into helping and participating in the development of positive treatments and solutions to rebuild our community, and to keep in mind the welfare of all the citizens. We call on all the women to support this statement and its provisions.
