I aim to investigate the current status of empowerment of women, particularly those with disabilities, using a literature review approach. I will achieve this using a purposive sampling method, searching databases such as JSTOR, Scopus, EBSCOhost, Taylor & Francis, and Google Scholar for relevant studies published between 1986 and 2022 using the search terms women with disabilities," "empowerment," and "empowering women in Iraq." The collected data will be analyzed thematically to identify and categorize patterns and themes related to empowering women with disabilities in Iraq after trauma. The analysis highlights the importance of empowering women with disabilities and the need to recognize the intersectionality of disability and gender. Approaches such as education and training programs, advocacy and policy change, and peer support groups have proven effective in empowering disabled women. The studies presented focus on the various forms of discrimination faced by disabled women and the need for context-specific measures of womens empowerment to capture the complexity of the concept. There are also studies on empowering women with disabilities after trauma, which emphasize the need to address barriers related to accessibility, discrimination, and limited education opportunities. The analysis highlights the social model of disability, the unique challenges and perspectives of disabled women, and the potential of self-determination, advocacy, and social support in empowering women with disabilities. The intersectional nature of oppression faced by disabled women and the importance of addressing stigma and discrimination against them are also emphasized."
