Despite the adoption of international laws for women’s rights, it is still seen that they do not have rights. Given these rights from a class perspective, and the flaw in that application stems from misunderstanding. Therefore, the following problem arises: What is the extent of Islam’s care for women’s rights, and what are these rights in the eyes of the law?

Since what the law and charters have given her is still pride, many laws have emphasized the rights of women, and there is no doubt that the development that Arab society has witnessed in various fields has burdened women with many unbearable burdens and costs. The woman has been linked to the machine and transformed from a mother educator to a productive worker. The wars that the world has gone through have added to many tragedies, especially for Iraqi women, as they have been subjected to murder, torture and rape. Modern wars have also led to tragedies in women directly. In addition to killing and displacement, whoever kills civilians and military personnel touches women. Directly, as for the civilian who kills his wife widowed, that is, by killing a woman or a brother, wars affect women in all circumstances and circumstances. Despite the cultural, political, legal and social awareness, these conventions and laws, including the 2005 Iraqi constitution, did not grant women all rights. Reports of international organizations indicate killing, torture and rape due to numerous wars that the existence of international conventions, internal laws and the Iraqi constitution guarantee many rights for women.
