In the run-up to war in Iraq, the Bush administration assured the world that America’s interest was in liberation – especially for women. The first book to examine how Iraqi women have fared since the invasion, “What Kind of Liberation?” reports from the heart of the war zone with dire news of scarce resources, growing unemployment, violence, and seclusion. Moreover, the book exposes the gap between rhetoric that placed women center stage and the present reality of their diminishing roles in the ‘new Iraq’.
