Today is Kashmiri Women’s Resistance Day to highlight how military occupation affects the lives of women & the role they play in resistance. It is also to commemorate the mass rape & torture at Kuman Poshpora in 1991 which is still denied legal justice.

This is a marvelous article by activist Essar Batool, a co-author of “Do you remember Kunan Poshpora?” & one of the petitioners to the court to reopen the Kunan Poshpora case against the Indian military: https://www.awid.org/news-and-ana…/womens-resistance-kashmir
