Voices from the Middle East: Syria
Voices from Syria shares untold stories from women who have escaped conflict. Women affected by violent extremism face victimization, but they are also survivors, leaders and activists with the ability to speak directly about their experiences. In 2016, an all-female film crew set out to connect with them and help to raise their voices online. Visit aswat.me to hear them.
This series from Aswat.me features stories about Syrian women’s resilience, leadership, independence and ingenuity to highlight everyday heroines and challenge the perceptions of women and girls in the country. Volume one focuses on access to education, mobility, and work outside the home. Stay tuned for news on a full feature documentary.
