We were saddened to learn of the passing of Mahabad Qaradaghi, a courageous and intellectual woman who advocated for women's rights and gender equality.  As a strong, patriotic writer, she devoted more than half of her life to achieving the legitimate rights and aims of women in Kurdistan. Her death is a great loss and her works will remain essential in the field of women’s rights, gender equality, and Kurdish literature.

We offer our condolences to her family and friends. God rest her soul.
