Stepping backwards into the future?

This article presents information related to women in Iraq. Iraqi women were oppressed by Saddam Hussein &mdash, president of Iraq; in exactly the same way as men for most of the former president's rule — afraid to speak out against the regime and ever watchful that freedom, since the first Gulf War, has been under attack and the rights of women have not improved but deteriorated in the new, free Iraq. Since the end of the war, however, the increasing erosion of women's rights is the implicit aim of a section of Iraq's new leaders.
