Industrial Relations: British Trade Union Congress to discuss women's rights in Iraq

The British TUC Congress, to be held in Brighton from 12th to 15th September, will discuss "Women's Rights in Iraq."

Delgate will express their concern over the proposed restrictions on women's civil rights due to the inclusion of provisions for religious codes within the draft Constitution, including Sharia law.

It will also condemn "the current and continuing rape, kidnapping and murder of women in Iraq for not conforming to religious social codes."
