Idlib - SMART

On Monday, the Future Women's Center organized a women sit-in titled "Women's Displacement is Violence" in the village of the al-Deir al-Sharqi in the Nahiyat Maarrat al-Nu'man, 32 kilometers south of Idlib, Northern Syria. The Future Women's Center organized the sit-in on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Fifteen women participated in the sit-in, raising signs saying, "Freedom to my husband," "I want my father," "I want to return to my house," "Rapists have to be punished," and "I want my freedom, no to violence against women."

Fatima 'Aliwi, a member in the Future Women's Center, said that they organized the sit-in to support Syrian women and highlight their suffering during displacement, violence, and the detainment of the women's husbands and sons.

The participant 'Ahid Hamoud said that displacement and detention are the worst kinds of violence against women. Hamoud added that she participated in the sit-in to convey the voice of women prisoners to concerned parties in an attempt to restore the imprisoned women's rights.

On November 25, 2018, the Syrian Network for Human Rights published a report documenting the killing of 27,226 women in Syria since 2011, most of whom were killed by the Syrian government and its allies. The report also documented the arrest of 9,906 women.

Many Syrian women joined the Civil Defense and work in humanitarian organizations, local administrations and other traditionally male professions. Women also participated in political conferences and won awards.
