As a Kurdish girl, I am always fighting a battle between traditionalism and modernism, as if these two ideologies are dichotomies on opposite sides of a cultural spectrum.
I am here to contest this illusion that we as a society have bestowed on ourselves.
It is important to remember that the Kurdish culture is not a static one.
This assumption has always baffled me, because Kurdish history and culture thrives on the backbones of strong women.There is no such thing as a single proper Kurdish girl. Labeling us and belittling our contributions to our struggle only cripples us as a whole.A Kurdish woman does not have to choose a side of the spectrum.Our traditional mothers are vivacious and powerful. Why are their daughters deemed as having lost their heritage?I for one have embodied both attributes of traditionalism and modernism.
In my mother’s time, her responsibility was to be a woman of the mountains to aid the Kurdish Struggle. She still held on to her Kurdishness, her traditions.
