To analyze the challenges and the potential strategies to advance gender equality in Iraq in a context of transition from humanitarian to recovery and development programming, UN Women and Oxfam commissioned a country gender profile. 
This gender profile highlights the status of women’s rights in Iraq and describes the needs, challenges and opportunities in relation to national policy, women’s leadership and political participation, the WPS agenda, women in the economy; violence against women and girls (VAWG); health services; women’s access to justice; social status and access to ICT and information. It aims tto identify opportunities to meet gender equality and women’s rights goals, and to support governments, international donors and agencies to develop gender-sensitive policies, budgets and programs for long-term impact.
