The Duchess of Edinburgh, Sophie, is starting to prove that she can totally steal the title of the “hardest working royal.” Basing her interest on women’s rights, Sophie has made herself a significant voice in the campaign for equality.

She was a key player in calling for humanitarian aid to be given to the women in Afghan after Taliban took over the country. Another angel who used her platform to campaign for it is actress Angelina Jolie, who launched her Instagram account with a heartwarming letter from an Afghan girl who just wishes to be educated without living in fear.

What Does Sophie’s Visit To Iraq Signify For the Women of the Country

According to a report released by Buckingham Palace, Sophie traveled to Iraq to learn about the challenges women and girls face as part of her ongoing work to support survivors of sexual violence in conflict. She kicked off her visit by going to a school to hear about the pupils’ education. There, she discussed how the country champions the education of girls and how it impacts the girls’ hopes for the future. She also got to pose for pictures with students and teachers at Hitten Girl’s School.

After meeting with Iraqi women, young and old, Sophie visited President Abdul Latif Rashid and prime minister Mohammad Shia Al Sudani. First Lady Shanaz Ibrahim Ahmed was present as the president formally received the Duchess.

As part of her mission to support the UN’s women, peace and security agenda, which encourages women’s participation in peace processes and conflict resolution, she gave a speech at the annual Women’s Voices First Conference. Her speech promoted the agenda that women must play a part in all efforts to achieve international peace and security.

Speaking on what Sophie and Iraq’s two political leaders discussed, Mr Bryson-Richardson said that while they talked about the ties the UK and Iraq shares, they mostly dwelled on how the country can help support and grant justice to survivors of sexual violence in armed conflict.
