Many groups purport to help women in Iraq. After witnessing their actions firsthand, Ms. Asquith reccommends these two groups:

 ASUDA in Iraq: Based in Northern Iraq, this is an Iraqi led organization that documents honor crimes and shelters women on the run from abusive husbands and family members.

Women for Women International: The work of this Washington DC based group was featured prominently in “Sisters in War”. Donations to them go towards training women to be sufficient financially and emotionally.
