In the early years of Saddam's rule, men and women were declared equal in lawComing up to four years since the start of the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, Everywoman explores the real issues facing women in Iraq today.
This Everywoman special – A day in the life of Iraqi women – is hosted by guest presenter Laila Al Shaikhli, herself an Iraqi.
With her to discuss the effects of the ongoing occupation on women's rights and their daily routines is Iraqi women's rights activist Houzan Mahmoud, the UK representative of the Organisation for Women's Freedom in Iraq.
Houzan Mahmoud grew up in Iraqi-Kurdistan and has been standing up against the oppression of women under the occupation.
Houzan Mahmoud talks to Laila Al ShaikhliEverywoman went to Baghdad to meet the women whose lives have been affected by the invasion. Filming in Iraq today is a risk and Everywoman's special reporter had exclusive access to four women who were willing to share their stories with the rest of the world despite the dangers they may face if recognised.
Through the lives of these four women – a journalist, a mother, a widow and an activist – we see that sectarian strife, rising violence and a climate of constant fear is reality for these women of Baghdad.
