Ava Homa is a Kurdish author, journalist, and speaker. Her book, ECHOES FROM THE OTHER LAND, provides a series of vignettes about the lives of Kurdish women. I thank her for her editorial and cultural advice on the Matriarch Matrix and her wisdom on helping make Zara a stronger female lead character.
The Kurdish Project website has nice overviews of Kurdish history, culture, and their struggles.
