Women’s Resistance in Kashmir: Tracing Origins, Forging Ways Ahead
On February 23rd, ZW will host a day long event to commemorate Kashmiri Women’s Resistance day. We invite 10 Kashmiri women to join us for an informal group discussion on the politics of remembrance and memory vis-a- vis the significance of the day and women’s resistance in Kashmir. We will also hold a close reading of excerpts from the book ‘Do you remember Kunan Poshpora?’ The event will conclude with a workshop on research and feminist methodologies. This event will be an opportunity for Kashmiri women to come together, forge meaningful alliances and conduct an honest exchange of ideas. We will be opening registrations for this event soon. If you are interested and available to join us in person on the 23rd Feb, watch this space more updates. The event will be held in Peer Bagh, Srinagar. Whilst we make every effort to include as many women in our journey, for now we only have 10 seats available, given the current circumstances. We will send out the invites based on a short form filled up during registration. Please note that this will be an informal, introductory event. This is not an academic event, everyone is encouraged to apply.
The medium of language will be in English, Urdu and Kashmiri.
