The Matriarchal Kurdish Society

Prior to Islam, the Kurdish community was a Matriarchal society. After Islam, this structure was destroyed in Kurdistan and the woman was totally enslaved.

Kara Fatma became very popular in the European press during the 1800-century as she was a female warrior, an amazon in the Muslim world. There was a lot of text and beautifully illustrated illustrations about her in the European press of that time.

There were two other very popular Kurdish personalities who were frequent in the European press, the Kurdish-Ottoman diplomat and the Ottoman Empire's Stockholm ambassador Cherif Pascha and Zaro Agha, who then had the title: The Oldest Man of the World with His Whole 160 Years long Lifetime.
