Kurdish women defended the rights of the Kurdish people side by side men. Proudly NOTE Muslims fear this women because if Muslim men are killed in battle by a woman then they will not go to Muslim Heaven and have those 72 virgins.
A Kurdish woman from Dersim, in festive outfit, late 19th century. Ethnic group: probably Zaza and Alevi Kürt.
