Kurdish Women’s Liberation and the Fight Against ISIS

Leftwing Kurdish feminists in Syria and Turkey are taking a leading role in fighting ISIS and building a bottom-up democratic and pluralistic society in Rojava (Syria). This discussion, led by Meredith Tax, author of A Road Unforeseen: Women Fight the Islamic State, will focus on how women transformed the Kurdish liberation movement from a classic guerilla struggle to something much more complex, how their feminism works out in practice, what obstacles they face, and what ideas they can offer US feminists.

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.
