A conference on Jineloji and the history of Kurdistan was held by Kurdish students and their friends at the University of Bretagne in Lorient. Brussels Jineoloji Center activist Sarah Marcha attended the conference at the university. Doğan Dağhan, a Kurdistan student studying at the University of Bretagne, told the history of Kurdistan.
In the second part of the conference, Brussels Jineoloji Center activist Sarah Marcha gave a speech to university students on Kurdish women and Jineloji. Marcha said: “We are discussing the history of women. The 5,000-year-old struggle of women started in Mesopotamia and affected the whole world. The slogan Jin Jiyan Azadi spread to Kurdistan and the whole world as a result of the Kurdish people's struggle against the imperialist and occupying forces. If women can express themselves and establish their own communes, as in Rojava, this shows the value the Kurdish freedom struggle has given to humanity.”
Marcha continued: “Women's freedom is the basic principle of the PKK. The PKK is a movement that sees the freedom of Kurdistan as the freedom of women. Sakine, Fidan and Leyla were revolutionary women. They were leading figures of the women’s movement. They wanted to change the system. For this reason, women are the target of the system.”
