Just started reading: “The Daughters of Kobani

Kobani resistance is such a powerful symbol that extremists and their (hidden) supporters are keen to punish this victory in one way or another. I guess, women’s role in his resistance is even a bigger blow to fundamentalists and patriarchy in the region. I do not intend to romanticize the “Rojava Revolution.” I wish democratic ideals could really be achieved. But life is hard, the region is hard and a democratic haven will be the target of all around it.

In any case, the book contains precious details of women fighters. It contextualizes the broader historical and political scene. It provides details of the siege and heroic resistance.
