BKD is a solidarity network founded to create policies against the male dominated system built upon the patriarchy.
BKD came together to fight against all the politics of the make dominated system which makes it possible for women to be demonised, erased, and where enmity towards every individual who is a woman or is regarded as a woman is encouraged, and where the murder of individuals are legitimised by honour killings.
The primary principles of BKD is to popularise, develop, and diversify women’s politics in every aspect of life, to detect and prevent discrimination, to expose anti-women politics, to ensure the implementation of the principle of equal representation in politics, and to question every type of militarist structure.
It is a well-known fact that women cannot change their lives without first taking on their right to determine their own destiny. This is exactly what BKD exists for. A different life for women is possible, and BKD is one of the organisations that struggle to make this a reality.
