About Zainab Salbi
Zainab Salbi, whose father was Saddam Hussein's pilot, spent her teen years as a palace insider in Iraq, until 1990, when her family sent her to the United States to escape the regime's brutal tyranny. She founded Women for Women International in Washington, D.C., and has published a memoir. Women for Women International, a non-profit organization with more than 127,000 supporters, has raised millions of dollars to help over 70,000 women in warring nations learn to support themselves and reinvigorate their economies by providing the tools and resources needed to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.
