Sexual Harassment: It’s No Joke Sexual harassment of women and girls in Kurdistan is widespread – on the street, online, in taxis, in schools, and in the workplace. It makes us fearful and keeps us from fully participating in school, work, community, and public life. This harms all of us. Think Before You Act In Iraq, many young women are subjected to harassment, exploitation, and abuse due to manipulation of their photos. It may seem innocent, but it's not a joke and can have dire consequences for the victim. And sharing this edited photo on social media is not only wrong, but in Kurdistan it's also illegal.
