University President Mary
Sue Coleman and University
Regent Julia Darlow attended
the lecture, which was pre-
sented by the Ross School of
Len Middleton, a Business
School professor who attend-
ed the lecture, said Salbi's sto-
ries of women helping other
women in war-torn nations
were powerful and not some-
thing that women in Ann
Arbor deal with every day.
"It touches them in a spe-
cial way," he said.
Salbi grew up in Iraq dur-
ing the 1980s under Saddam
Hussein's regime. Her father
was Hussein's personal pilot,
and she said her family was
part of the Iraqi elite.
Salbi said because her fam-
ily knew Hussein up close, he
took over their lives.
"We were like jesters in a
palace," she said. "We were so
afraid of talking."
She said that being close to
Saddam was like being close
to the devil.
It was her mother who first
pushed Salbi to leave Iraq
when she was a teenager.
Salbi described her moth-
er as a "strong woman" who
wouldn't even let her learn
to cook or clean so that a man
wouldn't expect that of her.
But it was her mother who
begged Salbi to accept an
arranged marriage proposal
from an Iraqi-American liv-
ing in Chicago.
Salbi begrudgingly left Iraq
at the age of 20 and married
an American she had never
met. Three months later, she
fled her husband, but decided
not to tell anyone back home
about her failed marriage.
Salbi wanted to return to
Iraq, but the outbreak of the
first Gulf War in 1991 made
it impossible, so she went to
George Mason University.
Learning about what she
called the "holocaust" in
Iraq and Bosnia, she became
"I knew what it felt like to
hear missiles falling on my
neighborhood," Salbi said.
She felt an obligation to
reach out, and with her new
husband she founded Women
for Women International
when she was only 23.
The organization supports
women in war zones by find-
ing monetary and emotional
sponsors for the women, cre-
ating social networks, educat-
ing the women and helping
them find jobs.
In her lecture, Salbi said
women are often-overlooked
casualties of war.
So much emphasis is placed
on the front lines of a war,
Salbi said, but violence often
starts with women.
Salbi described howwomen
are often the victims of esca-
lating rape and domestic vio-
lence during war.
She told stories of rape,
kidnappings and assassina-
tions of women who are often
merely struggling to feed
She told of a woman wait-
ing in line for food and water,
watchingsnipers shoot others
in the line around her. But the
woman stayed put - she had
no choice but to provide her
family with the necessities.
"We don't talk about the
fear that comes with war,"
She went on to describe
how women are forgotten
during peace negations,which

is why she said it is important
for an increase in prominent

She said that although
people often question why
women support religious fun-

reaching out to help them in

"Peace is interpreted
as 'How is my life going to
improve?' " Salbi said, adding
