In general Kurdish women's rights and equality have improved dramatically in the 21st century due to progressive movements within Kurdish society, However, despite the progress, Kurdish and international women's rights organizations still report problems related to gender equality, forced marriages, honor killings and in Iraqi Kurdistan also female genital mutilation (FGM).
2 years ago he found out that he has a child by a girl that he had been with before me but told me that he ran away when he found out.
He recently went bk home as he wanted to see his family again as it had been 6 yrs and was forced to marry the girl bcos he has a child with her but he doesnt want to be with her, he doesnt love her or know her, he only did it bcos he hds no other choice, the girls father said that he would kill him and his family if he didnt do it so he had to.
While I was there, I discovered a world that was entirely new to me, and I explored various facets of the society I was living in. I was completely out of my comfort zone, and thus open to all of the stunning, horrible, and marvelous wonders of Kurdistan. Anything good you do reflects upon your family, but even more so, anything bad you do brings shame upon your relatives. They are proud of this unique land, which they fought to build.
This communal influence contrasts with the individualism of the West, where we exist largely separate from our families. The Peshmerga, the Death-Confronters, the Iraqi Kurdish militia, are still actively defending the country they fought to build against ISIS, just as they defended it against Saddam Hussein. Every family I met had someone who sacrificed, or even died, for Kurdish independence. They are wary of Arabs and Turks, who have a history of oppressing Kurds.
