Hillary Clinton: Iraqi Women Miss Saddam

Hillary Clinton: Iraqi Women Miss Saddam

According to Hillary Clinton, women in Iraq preferred the good old days of Saddam Hussein.

"We also have to do more on women's rights and roles. And I have been
deeply troubled by what I hear coming out of Iraq. When I was there and met with
women members of the governing councils and local--of the national governing councils
and local governing councils in Baghdad and Kirkuk, they were starting to express
concerns about some of the pullbacks in the rights that they were given under Saddam
Hussein. He was an equal opportunity oppressor, but on paper women had rights; they
went to school; they participated in the professions; they participated in government; and
business and, as long as they stayed out of his way, they had considerable freedom of
movement."
