From all four parts of Kurdistan and across the diaspora, Kurdish women from different geographical, political and educational backgrounds pick up a pen, reflect and remember. Going beyond exoticizing stereotypes and patriarchal representations, Kurdish Women's Stories gives twenty-four women authorial freedom to write about their own lived experiences. With contributors ranging from twenty to seventy years of age, we hear stories of imprisonment, exile, disappearances of loved ones, gender-based violence, uprisings, feminist activism and armed resistance, including first-hand accounts of political moments from the 1960s to today. Conceived as part of Culture Project's self-writing program, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to better understand the struggle of Kurdish women through their own words.
