BREMER MEETS WITH IRAQI WOMEN EDUCATORS AND ATTORNEYS
Baghdad ? Iraqi women educators and lawyers met with Ambassador L. Paul Bremer Friday morning to discuss security and the role of women in the political process. During the meeting, Bremer advised the members of the Future Society for Iraqi Women to participate in the nomination process for the upcoming Independent Electoral Commission. He also encouraged the group to educate women on the importance of getting involved in the economy by taking advantage of micro loans which could be used to start small businesses.
?The meeting was perfect. We appreciate his advice to nominate women to be a part of the Electoral Commission. Now the most important part is for us to follow through,? said Hanna Murad, Deputy President of the Future Society for Iraqi Women.
The Future Society for Iraqi Women is composed of lawyers and educators who have come together to provide legal assistance for women who have been victims of abuse and torture. They conduct information and education programs for women in the area of legal rights, promote women in government work to reduce discrimination against women, and fight against the imposition of religious law. The group has organized a Legal Defense Fund for women and has become involved with the Transitional Safe House for abused women.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
