They publish articles, pictures and broadcast videos of women candidates for the Iraqi parliamentary elections."
She called on those people to stop ridicule women candidates, also called on the political blocs and civil society organizations to take a firm stance on this subject and condemn these actions that do not fit with the Kurdish community culture.
