May News Update: Justice for Women in Iraq

Since 2005, the Global Justice Center has worked with our partners in Iraq to hold perpetrators of gender-based crimes accountable in order to ensure a rule of law based on gender equality.

Today, your support is critical as we lead the effort to ensure justice for ISIS’ genocide against the Yazidi in Iraq.

As our recent legal brief illustrates, and as our Staff Attorney Grant Shubin made clear in a New York Times Letter to the Editor“If prosecuted under Iraq’s penal code, basic crimes of ISIS’ gender-based violence will go unpunished.”
