Webinar: The Kurdish Dimension of Iran’s Protest Movement
The Kurdish Peace Institute organizes a virtual panel to discuss how and why Kurds are rising up, the role of Kurdish women in resistance to gender inequality and ethnic discrimination in Iran.
The Kurdish Peace Institute will organize a virtual panel tomorrow, Friday, to discuss how and why Kurds are rising up, the role of Kurdish women in resistance to gender inequality and ethnic discrimination in Iran and the impacts of the protest movement and the Iranian government’s militarized approach to the Kurdish question for regional stability and security.
The second-largest Kurdish population in the Middle East lives within the borders of Iran, but their plight has all too often gone unseen and unheard of until the murder of a Kurdish woman by Iranian ‘morality police’ sparked the largest nation-wide protests in Iran’s recent history.
