The Valor of Tekin Women - True Feminism

The Valor of Tekin Women – True Feminism

In the winter morning of 1881, a remarkable event was etched into history – the Geok-Tepe Battle. The fortress of Geok-Tepe in Turkmenistan faced an assault by Russian forces led by General Mikhail Dmitrievich Skobelev.

Courageous defenders of the fortress found themselves in the midst of a fiery tempest. But Tekin women, being not only mothers and daughters, they became an integral part of this battle. They not only shielded their children from shelling but also joined the fight alongside men, ready to sacrifice their lives to protect their home and homeland.

Even their silver adornments resembled armor, but they wore them not just as decorations but as symbols of their own strength and determination. In the dark, moonless nights, they undertook daring nocturnal sorties, like true Amazons and Valkyries, carrying with them the spirit of unwavering resolve.

This story reminds us that feminism is not just about fighting for women’s rights but also about courage, determination, and the ability to act alongside men when it comes to defending family and homeland.
