Power, Gender & Rojava.

THIS EVENT WAS ORGANISED BY SISTERS UNCUT AND BLACK DISSIDENTS

“We have the responsibility to be in solidarity with other women who suffer under oppression, whose bodies, labour and culture are consumed by capitalists, by men and by the state...unity is important in order for our struggles not to be forgotten or neglected. If women are not free, no one will be free.”

- RojWomen.

A series of brief introductory talks given by women from the Rojava movement, followed by focussed discussion on the Rojava revolution in Northern Syria, the central role of women within this liberation movement and the relationship, if any, this might have to women in the UK, or feminist movements at large.

Speakers include:

Evrim Yilmaz, member of Foreign Affairs committee of Roj Women Assembly.

Zeynep Kurban, also a member of RojWomen and The Kurdish Red Cross, the only humanitarian aid service active in Kobane and Rojava.

female:pressure is launching an awareness and solidarity campaign for the canton of #Rojava (located in northern Syria), where women participate on all levels of decision making and building a new society from scratch, with built-in social, racial and ethnic justice, religious freedom, ecological principles and gender equality.
