ABSTRACT
The war in Iraq has been a war unlike any other that we have experienced in the United States.  We were able to see first hand the front of the war.  Embedded reporters live streaming shots, and frequent reports from the front lines made it possible for the American citizen to experience a front row seat for the War in Iraq. Women in Iraq have undergone violent transformation both politically and socially as dominant narratives and representations have changed over the course of the war and occupation. This essay seeks to uncover the feminine narratives and representations of Iraqi civilians in our current media.  These media representations and narratives of Iraqi women are not balanced.  This essay provides a historical account of Iraqi women's role in government, public affairs, family life, etc and how that role has changed since this US invasion and occupation of Iraq. The analysis of this essay also offers a psychoanalytic approach to explain these representations in terms of dominate narratives and feminine narratives and the implications of these representations for the women of Iraq. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
