Free Women’s Congress from Kurdistan

Solidarity with the call for an International Action Day Against Feminicide of Yazidi Women

English

Belgrade, 3/8/2016 - With today’s action at the Republic Square, Women against Violence Network joined the call of the Free Women’s Congress from Kurdistan to declare August 3 as the International Action Day Against Feminicide of Yazidi Women. We, thus, called on United Nations to, in addition to the recognised genocide, recognise systemic feminicide that is being committed against Yazidi women in Sinjar by Islamic State.
