Number of disappeared women from Iraq after war

In the seven years after the 2003 war in Iraq, the Organization for Women’s Freedom in Iraq estimates that around 4,000 women disappeared from the country due to human trafficking activities. One fifth of the disappeared women between 2003 and 2010 were under the age of 18.
