Abstract

This book originates from my Ph.D. thesis (2006) on Kurdish women’s political participation and the formation of a Kurdish women’s identity. The interviews that I carried out in 2005 formed the basis for both the thesis and the Turkish version of this book, which was first published in 2007. I also included a feminist reading of the fundamental texts for understanding the ideological–political discourse of the Kurdish political movement as well as texts from pro-Kurdish political parties
