Iraqis Reach Agreement on Interim Constitution from FoxNews.com:
The United States Congress isn't even made up of 25% women (right now its about 13.6%)... why on Earth do we think we should force that quota or even goal on Iraqi's? Not that I'm against having female representatives in any way... in fact in the U.S. the statistics show that when women run for office, they are more likely to be voted in when running against a man. The problem is that women don't tend to run for one reason or another. But thats besides the point.
If you have a truly democratic system where the people vote for their representation, how on can you possibly even enforce such a quota/goal? I have a feeling this is more to satisfy all the Politically Correct Enforcement Agents that are here in the U.S. which is a shame. That sort of language doesn't belong in anyone's constitution.
