This book offers the first historical account of Kurdish women's politicization in Turkey, starting from the mid-1980s. Çaglayan presents a critical feminist analysis through women's everyday experiences, incorporating women's self-narrations with her own autoethnographic reflections. The author provides an account of the socio-political dynamics which constrained women's politicization, of the factors and mechanisms which enabled their political activism, and of the construction of women's political history through their own narrations. Women in the Kurdish Movement is a highly original contribution to Kurdish women's political history. It will be key reading for students and scholars across various disciplines with an interest in gender, political participation, everyday resistance, feminist methodology, nationalism, ethnicity, secularism, social movements, post-colonial studies, and the Middle East.
