A number of legal clinics have been set up by non-governmental organizations in Baghdad and several governorates in Iraq, excluding the region of Kurdistan. They offer legal advice and assistance to widows, marginalized women and women without a family provider. The number of these clinics is very small and does not match the increase in the number of widows, marginalized women and battered women.
