#IMarchFor the girl child. I march for my daughter. In two years, she will be an adolescent, and in five years she will be a youth. I want my daughter to grow up in a world where she’s given equal opportunities, where she can make informed life decisions and where evidence-based decisions are valued. I fight for my daughter's dreams and ambitions.

This is why I march”

I ask myself why is it that sexual & reproductive health & rights remain controversial when it’s so obvious that they are essential for the health and wellbeing of all - especially women & girls.

@network_iraqi @IraqiGovt #CEDAW74 Committee ends the review with warnings to @IraqiGovt, if minimum age was 16 in 1956, then more recently it was changed to 9 years, and now it is back to 16. This is not progress; we must draw a red line and not regress on this question of #childmarriage.

#CEDAW74 review of Iraq has concluded & with it @Musawah's final CEDAW intervention for 2019. We will continue to report on & advocate for reform of discriminatory Muslim family laws at #CEDAW in 2020. We look forward to working closely with national level advocates in doing so.
