Pîroz Mawa grew up in Northern Kurdistan in a patriotic environment and, like many other Kurds, witnessed the denial and assimilation policies of the Turkish state yet in childhood.
She could not accept this injustice and so she decided to rebel against the system. She was deeply impressed by the resistance of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party) in the context of the reality in the mountains of Kurdistan. In 1992, Pîroz Mawa decided to join the Kurdish liberation movement, claiming victory for a free motherland and life in freedom.
From the first day in the mountains until her martyrdom, Pîroz Mawa stood out in many areas of the struggle through her determination, morality, devotion, sincerity, deep faith and selfless nature. She was always regarded as a role model for her comrades.
Most recently, Pîroz Mawa fought in the Zap region. In the place where she fell, she resisted the occupation on the front lines to face the enemy's attacks. She made great efforts to transform herself into a contemporary guerilla with a new understanding of war.
Pîroz Mawa died on 27-10-2017 in an air raid by the Turkish army on the Zap region in the Medya Defence Zones in southern Kurdistan.
