Women in Iraq are making a difference every single day by serving as emergency room workers.

By treating patients, these women are having a positive impact on people’s lives. 


“Receiving a simple ‘Thank you’ makes you feel like you are doing the right thing,” said one woman.  “It gives you a feeling that you have accomplished something.”


Watch a woman in Iraq share her story and explain why her job is rewarding and gives her joy every day.


Next up, we have a strong message from a Jamaican woman: “Anything men can do, we can too.” It’s time to #thinkEQUAL.
