International Conference on Women's Revolution in Iran: Women, Life, Freedom.
Soraya Fallah title of speech:
Struggles of Hyphenated Identity in the "Woman, Life, Freedom/Jin/Jiyan, Azadi " Movement
Focus on Kurdish Women in Iran
In my research presentation on the struggles of hyphenated
identity in the "Women, Life, Freedom" Revolution, focusing on
Kurdish women in Iran, I shed light on the multifaceted experiences of Kurdish
women navigating oppressive norms and structures. Drawing upon theoretical
frameworks such as feminist theory Margin-Center Theory, and intersectionality. I
explore the complexities of Kurdish women's lives within the broader context of
the women's movement in Iran. Through examining historical injustices, political developments, cultural factors, and the impact of patriarchal structures, I uncover the challenges Kurdish women face in their activism
and pursuit of rights. Moreover, I highlight their agency and resilience in
challenging societal expectations, asserting their rights, and working towards
empowerment within the "Women, Life, Freedom" Revolution. Through this research, we gain a deeper understanding of Kurdish women's struggles, aspirations, and contributions in Iran and the
importance of their inclusion in the broader women's movement for lasting
gender equality and freedom.
