I heard on BBC news or NPR the other day that 60% of Iraq's population is female &, if one calculates the percentage of females in Iraq using the CIA World Factbook (online) statistics, the percentage of females is 49% - a MAJORITY or HALF of the population is female. YET, the interim Iraqi governing entity ("Iraqi Council") that has recently been set up only includes 3 women in it out of 25 total members. This is RIDICULOUS!
