CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans is heading an all women's delegation to Iraq.

The group went Iraq to meet with and listen to Iraqis, the troops and US officials. They are currently traveling to Washington DC for meetings with Congress, the administration, and the press.
|Message from Medea Benjamin, following her trip to Iraq|
I'm on my way back to the US (in the Amsterdam airport) after an incredible trip to Iraq with the delegation of military families and veterans. We spent a week meeting with everyone from Ambassador Paul Bremer, the highest-ranking civilian in Iraq, to generals, US soldiers and all kinds of Iraqis. The delegates were wonderful and by the end of the week had formed a powerful bond with the Iraqi people.
