(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #248 - Kurdish women "breaking Theory" and "jineoloji" (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:59:50 +0300

If the Kurdish women's movement clearly wants to destroy patriarchy and refers to the experiences of the feminist movement, strives to build an original theory, adapted to the context of Kurdistan. ---- The Kurdish theory of women's liberation is called "theory of rupture". Its main principles are: to act independently of man; rely on his own strength; reveal his gender awareness; create own organizations to women. Women's liberation is considered the foundation of the struggle for democracy, the condition sine qua non for release of capitalism. ---- The arming of women is justified in the first place, for self-defense against the system of male domination. Indeed, the rupture theory also includes a draft "action of women for human transformation". ---- This means fighting against man in mixed organizations and not leave him no choice but change.

Found an autonomous research

Jin means women in Kurdish. The jineoloji is the "woman of science." She wants to raise gender awareness among women by their unique experiences at the center without state subsidies and relying only on their own strength. The jineoloji wants to converge the experiences of women of the world, rather than accept the Western-centered feminist theory and suffer the androcentric research centers affiliated to the University and the State.

Against the University Academies women

The male hegemony in the scientific field has indeed too often leads to finding pseudo-scientific alibis to the position of "second sex" given to women. Today the University is thus one of the main representatives of patriarchy. We must challenge the established truths and focus research and the writing of the history of woman by herself. In this area too, is a genuine need for self-defense. That's why we were instituted "women academies", which conduct their own research in all directions, including criticizing the notions of aesthetics and beauty built the expense of women.
