The Kurdish Women’s Movement and the Struggle for Peace in Turkey

Merdjanova’s  project at CAS will analyze the Kurdish women’s struggles for recognition and gender equality at the intersection of two diverse social movements in Turkey: the Kurdish national movement for equal rights, inclusive citizenship and regional autonomy, on the one hand, and the larger feminist movement, which includes women from all ethic and religious groups in the country, on the other hand. It will look in particular at the role of Kurdish female activists in the country-wide feminist struggles for peace as well as for women’s emancipation and for the legal and cultural redefinition of the category of woman itself.
