"Mahsa (Jina) Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman, died in the hospital on September 16, 2022, three days after being arrested by the Iranian Guidance Patrol (also known as the “morality police” in English) for her alleged “improper hijab.” Her murder became the mobilizing cry for the massive protests that have swept across Iran. Outraged by Mahsa Amini’s mysterious death, Iranian women have been in the forefront of the street protests, removing their hijab, and some cutting off their hair publicly while resisting police crackdown. Many people have been arrested and killed since the beginning of the protests that have spread across the country."  -  Read the full article HERE

What It's All About

Women Life Freedom

"For the fear of dancing in the alleys
For fear at the moment of kissing
For my sister, your sister, our sisters
For changing rusted minds, for the shame of poverty
For the wish to live a normal life...

For the feeling of peace
For the sun after a long night
For sleeping pills and insomnia
For man, homeland, prosperity
For the girl who wished to be a boy
For woman, life, freedom
For freedom, for freedom, for freedom
."

- Baraye Lyrics, by Iranian singer Shervin Hajipour

ISBN : 1-78680-647-9

From Saddam Hussein's reign of terror beginning in the 1960s, to the fight against ISIS today, violence, revolution and questions around identity, agency, survival and resistance have been at the forefront of women's lives for decades. This book is a collection of these women's stories written in their own words. Each story reveals a tapestry of experiences, including political activism under Saddam and armed resistance in Rojava's PKK and YPG and Komala in Rojhalat.
