Actively engaged in an ethno-nationalist struggle since the 1980s, the story of the Kurdish women of Turkey is one current example of women’s involvement in shaping the history of the region. This book focuses upon Kurdish women of Turkey and the ongoing evolution of their role in defining and mobilizing the Kurdish quest for recognition as a people within and against the Republic of Turkey.
