Peace in Kurdistan Campaign and Roj Women’s Association would like to invite you to


Feminicide in Sinjar – sexual violence, conflict, and gender liberation in the Kurdish struggle

[Venue]
Khalili Lecture Theatre, SOAS University, London WC1H 0XG

[Date/Time]
Saturday 22 November, 5-7pm

Three months after ISIS fighters attacked the Iraqi region on Sinjar, the fate of thousands of women kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery following the raids is still unknown and no international investigation into their welfare has taken place. However, just as it has done in the defence of Kobane in Syria, the Kurdish Women’s Movement has mobilised with allied organisations to take action for the missing women.

This event will bring together women activists and representatives of the Kurdish women’s organisations to give you first-hand information about how people have responded to the crisis on the ground. We’ll also discuss the unique potential within the Kurdish Women’s Movement for engendering gender liberation in the region and its role in the development of the Rojava revolution.

Come and join us for this exciting one-off event!
