Iraq Welcomes Its First All-Women Bank Branch
"In Najaf, there are many women who are business women, and they have companies in many different lines of work."
- Abdel Razzaq Mansur, bank CEO
An Iraqi bank has inaugurated the country's first branch entirely dedicated to and operated by women.
Even the bank chief cannot enter his branch in Najaf, the holy Shiite Muslim city which is host to this women's empowerment phenomenon of the Muslim world.
