Kashmiri Women’s Resistance Day



Every year since 2014, 23 rd February 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, on the night of 23 rd February 1990. The two and half decades–long struggle of the survivors from Kunan and Poshpora is a part of the larger on-going struggle in Jammu and Kashmir, against the institutionalized and structural violence of the Indian state in the region.
