ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues arising from the U.S. International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) in relation to the Iraq war. The bill would finance government initiatives aimed at preventing violence against women and supporting legal and health systems for gender violence survivors. The criticisms and suggestions by Iraqi activist Haifa Zangana regarding the role of feminism in foreign policy are tackled. The author concludes that I-VAWA offers legislators an opportunity to discuss the integration of gender into foreign policy.
