Dear K.Dee Ignatin,
It seems that we fight for the same cause on opposite sides of the globe.
Although polygamy was about to end in the modern Iraq, the political mess of the new millennium has introduced us into a new age of politicized misogyny.
The new mutations of Islamism into an uncontrolled beast has made most feminists and egalitarian of the Middle-East lay low.
A few of us are still determined to stand against them and tell the whole world that we, the women in Iraq, reject polygamy, paedophilia (of female children), and submission.
I personally have gained a reputation at that, but it always comes with a high cost. Our current "democratic" constitution has given way to polygamy while it was penalized before the occupation.
You have an ally and a supporter in Iraq.
Keep on leading the struggle for women's liberation and do not wait for appologists to make you stronger. You do not need them.
In Solidarity, Yanar Mohammed
Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq, president
