International Women's Day

Media Type

In accordance with International Women’s Day on March 8, 2020, the National Agenda for the Future of Syria programme, along with the ESCWA Centre for Women, put together this video to portray the strong and resilient women of Syria.

"The conflict in Syria has exacerbated the already existing challenges faced by women in Syria. Yet, many women have been a symbol of resilience as they have been playing a leadership role in supporting their communities through the hard times posed by the conflict. Thus, it is important that the rebuilding process is inclusive such that it enables women to reach their full potential in a better and more hopeful Syria".
