At the latest since the historical resistance against the so-called IS in Kobanê, the images of the Kurdish female fighters of the YPJ have been present everywhere. But many people do not know that the Kurdish women in Rojava derive their strength for the construction of a democratic, multi-ethnic, ecological and gender-free social system from more than 40 years of resistance against the Turkish occupation and annihilation. In this seminar we want to learn about the manifold and enlightening history of the Kurdish women’s movement in all four parts of Kurdistan.
