The Kurdish womenís movement, the Union of Free Women (YJA), has changed its name to the Kurdistan Communities of Women (Komalen Jinen Kurdistan, KJK) in order to reorganize itself under a confederal system.
The KJK is the revolutionary democratic womenís organizations and unions for action that fight against the hierarchical state-owned mentality and the liberation from its impact. Striving for mental transformation based on the ideology of womenís liberation, the mission of the KJK is the democratization of society by the autonomous organization of women.
The KJK is local and universal organizations of struggle unifying strength, hearts and actions of women from Kurdistan and the Middle East for the realization of their common goals. KJK carries the responsibility to develop and implement policies for the establishment of a democratic, political society and national unity in Kurdistan by taking the democratic-confederate organization of women as its fundament.

I found a big photo that show 18 flags mainly from independentist or
autonomist movements in solidarity with Azawad. 15 flags are well know but for
three I canít identify them.
There is a flag in a extreme of the photo, few visible. It is purple with an emblem. At side there's the Scotland flag.
