[JURIST] A group of Iraqi women attending an international meeting of women's rights activists in Amman, Jordan, called Wednesday for a 40 percent representation quota in the Iraqi National Assembly. The two-day event, hosted by Women for Women International [advocacy website] was attended by 12 current members of the National Assembly. Currently, Iraqi law requires that women make up 25 percent of the Assembly. Zainab Salbi [profile], president of Women for Women, said protection for women's rights needs to be "clearly stated" in the new Iraqi constitution. Reuters has more.
