Twelve years ago, a women’s revolution started in Rojava – North and East Syria. In this revolution, women are not only represented on all fronts, but are in fact the driving force of the revolution. The trailblazing role of women is firmly established in the model of society: from the co-chairing system, the gender quote and the women’s rights stipulated in law to the establishment of autonomous multi-ethnic women’s structures, organisations and institutions. These achievements can only be guaranteed by also achieving a mental revolution – that is being developed with Jineology, the science of women. The workshop will introduce the confederate women’s structures and their achievements, explain the role of Jineology and ask: what is the significance of these experiences for international women’s struggles and how can we combine our struggles?

Please note

Unfortunately, the originally planned speakers and workshop leaders Rehan Temo and Remziye Mihemed were denied entry to Austria. At short notice, Necîbe Qeredaxî and Sarah Marcha from the Jineolojî Center in Brussels agreed to travel to Vienna and take over and lead the formats.
