Women of Syria

Nearly 50 Syrian women came together from in and around Syria at a conference, facilitated by UN Women that was held on the 11 to 13 January 2014 in Geneva. The conference was held to appeal for peace, to call for a voice in the ongoing political negotiations on their country — particularly during the “Geneva II” peace talks which opened in Switzerland on 22 January, and to draw the world’s attention to the ongoing tragedy facing their people. Here, a number of them share their hopes for Syria.
