Rojava women, who began their journey with the motto, “Rojava revolution is a women’s revolution”, appear as fighters or sometimes as politicians. The Rojava revolution that becomes hope for all women in the world has already come to fruition. One of these successes is the village project; in the village the women will form free and communal life. Jinwar village was begun to be built on March 10 near Dirbesiyê city and the construction works in the village continue at full stream. While the construction of 21 houses has been completed within the scope of the project prepared by female engineers, the construction of 32 houses has continued in the village. The women say, “The construction of JINWAR Village is the most radical response to the male dominant mindset.”

Emînê Hêliz, works as institutional spokesperson in the village committee comprising of six women, expressed that such kind of project has been conducted in Rojava for the first time, “The purpose of the establishment of Jinwar Village is very sacred. We want the women to improve themselves both ideational and military areas. The women will know themselves more in the Jinwar Village’s life and they will understand they can live by themselves.”

Emîne talked about the capacity of the areas where Jinwar Village is being built and she gave the following details; “The village is being built on 300 acres area. We decided to build 50 houses here. 21 houses have been built until now within the scope of the project. One part of the village is reserved for agriculture. We plant wheat and barley there. We will plant trees in one part. We will build houses in the other parts.”

Jinwar will have a school

Everything has been thought for life in the village. One of these is education. Mentioning that schoold will be built in the village, Emîne said, “Works for building school have been started. The children can stay in the village until 15 or 16 years old. When the construction of the village is completed and the village commune is formed, the age of the children will be discussed and how old children can stay in the village will be decided. First we decided the children could stay in the village until a certain age. The decision is the decision of the village commune when it is formed.”
