American University of Iraq-Baghdad American Space Hosted an All-Women’s Iftar
April 20, 2022

On April 20, American University of Iraq-Baghdad American Space hosted an all-women’s iftar – PAS’s first since 2019 – at the university’s mudheif, a replica of a traditional floating house found in the marsh areas of southern Iraq. The youth-focused iftar welcomed women from our flagship youth exchange program, the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program, as well as alumnae of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) and Study of the U.S. Summer Institute (SUSI) programs. Several of the alumnae share their professional experiences with the group and talked about their work to prevent #violence against #women and #trafficking in persons.
