On Thursday, the Political Bureau of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan sent a congratulatory message to the women in Kurdistan Region, on the occasion of International Women's Day, and the text of the message is as follows:


On the occasion of International Women's Day, which marks the 8th of March, we congratulate all women in Kurdistan on the occasion of International Women's Day. The PUK takes this opportunity to affirm its full support for the struggle of women in the Kurdistan Region, hoping to advance women's rights, reduce violence against them, and advance them in important areas of life.


Since its establishment and until today, the PUK has been a supporter of the struggle of women, in word and deed, to obtain their rights, starting with changing the personal status law, their representation reaches (30%) in the Parliament of Kurdistan, and in the topics of reducing the phenomenon of violence against women, and the provision of many different civil rights for them, and the PUK has been a constant supporter in this path of struggle for girls and women of Kurdistan.


Women in South Kurdistan have gained significant gains, as they participate in elections like men, and they have an active role in the Parliament of Kurdistan, as well as in the defense fronts in terms of participation and giving of martyrs, but the struggle for the death of women needs more effort, it is essential for all parties to demand progress and freedom to support women's struggle.


Once again happy Women's Day for all women of Kurdistan
