Kashmiri Women’s Resistance Day is being observed on Sunday on both sides of the Line of Control.

Every year since 2014, this day is commemorated as Kashmiri Women’s Resistance Day, inspired by the struggles of the survivors of mass rape and torture in the twin villages of Kunan and Poshpora in Occupied Kashmir.

The three decades-long struggle of the survivors from Kunan and Poshpora is a part of the larger on-going struggle in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, against the institutionalized and structural violence of the Indian state in the region.

In connection to this day, in her message a seventeen year old Kashmiri girl said we will stand with our men during freedom movement and will not stop until freedom is achieved.
