Aleppo - SMART

On Wednesday, women held a conference in the city of Azaz, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria, to establish an organization to deal with women's affairs and empower women in politics, economy, culture, and society in general.

Wisal Muhammad, a member of the Supporting Women's Empowerment Community, said that they will establish an organization that empowers, expresses, and defends women's rights. Muhammad added that they will seek to open organizational offices in other major cities in addition to Azaz in order to achieve rapid and effective access to different components of society. Muhammad noted that they will hold training courses to increase women's skills and capabilities.

Fatima al-Nabhan, a member of the Administrative Board of Women’s Empowerment, said that she works with other women in the Turkish branch of the organization. Al-Nabhan added that they came to attend the conference in order to unify the efforts of the organization in Syria and Turkey. Al-Nabhan noted that they will open executive offices to empower women to stand with and support men.

Fatima al-Sa'di, the head of the Women’s Empowerment Committee, said the they held the conference after six months of preparations in order to bring women from the "old reality" to the new one in which women are active in every component of society.

Dozens of women, a Syrian Interim Government delegation, and the Aleppo Governorate Council, attended the meeting.

Organizations regularly open centers to empower women in areas outside Syrian government control in Northern Syria. The centers train women in different fields including nursing, sewing, and beauty treatments.
