Abstract or Summary
  • This research explores the experiences of Iraqi women during and after the 2003 U.S.-led war (2003-2011). The aim of the project was to provide an occasion for a group of Iraqi women to give voice to their lived experiences of war and to document these voices, adding their subjective perspectives to the discourse surrounding the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Ten women who had lived in Iraq for at least two years during the 2003 U.S.-led war were recruited for this study. The rationale of this study is to explore the participants' experiences of war through face-to-face in-depth semi-structured interviews. Using a grounded theory approach and qualitative analysis, the data were coded and emerging themes were identified. Four major themes that were discussed by participants were: (1) Gender-based Violence; (2) The Rescue Narrative; (3) Long Lasting Physical and Psychological Harm; and (4) Poverty and Female-headed Households. The stories that emerged from these interviews provide a counter narrative to the U.S.-centric story of the conflict.
