Peace in Kurdistan Women’s Alliance for Kurdistan, Iraq and Syria Statement for International Women’s Day

Peace in Kurdistan

In memory of Sakine Cansız, Fidan Doğan, and Leyla Şaylemez, assassinated in Paris in 2013 and three KJA executive members, Sêvê Demir, Pakize Nayir and Fatma Uyar, assassinated in Turkey 2016.

On the 107th International Women’s Day, 2017, we salute the heroic resistance of Kurdish Women in Syria, Turkey, and Iraq.

For 7 years the women of the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units) have battled to liberate themselves not only from the systematic sexual violence of ISIS, but also from the patriarchal values expressed in minds, in communities and across all regions of the world. Their slogan is “We will defeat the attacks of the Islamic State by securing the liberation of the women of the Middle East”.
