Women have been leading a historical revolution in a small country of the world. While the brutal attacks of ISIS on Rojava have been repelled by the resistance of women, their resistance encourages all women around the world. Despite the ongoing attacks on Rojava, women organize them in all areas, from economy to ecology, from politics to diplomacy. Yekitiya Star announced its foundation in 2005 under the pressure of the Baathist regime. After holding its sixth congress, the name of Yekitiya Star was changed to its current name of Kongra Star. Kongra Star, which has carried out important activities for women in Rojava, has 12 committees aiming to build the Democratic Nation.
Mala Jin (Women’s House, a kind of women’s shelter) was first opened in Qamishlo. Now, it has 62 branches across northeastern Syria. It has become a space of hope and solution for women in the region and a role model for the whole world.
The women's union Zenobiya works for the organization of women in the north and east Syrian regions of Raqqa, Tabqa, Manbij and Deir ez-Zor. However, the work is to be extended to all of Syria.
Zenûbiya Women's Community has carried out many activities, actions, and works such as activating committees and coordination, holding meetings for women, enacting laws prohibiting child marriage, and empowering women’s economy. The community’s spokesperson and executives call on women to come together under the same umbrella.
In Deir ez-Zor, more women have taken part in decision-making at all levels since their city was liberated from ISIS. The women of the city have become stronger since the foundation of the Women’s Council.
