Muslim world Women

To live self-determined

When they hear the word “migrant woman” many people automatically think of a Muslim woman – wearing a hijab. For Fatma Keser, not a sign of tolerance, but a symptom of a narrow view of the world.

Fatma Keser explains why she turned her back on her Kurdish community.

Fatma Keser, daughter of Kurdish refugees, came to Germany with her parents as a child. She studied philosophy and comparative literature here. Together with two other female migrants, she founded the initiative “Women migrants for Secularity and Self-Determination”.

In a self-portrait, Fatma Keser describes how it came about.
