The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) salutes women everywhere in the world on the occasion of International Women’s Day, especially the Syrian women resisting tyranny and injustice. We pay tribute to the efforts Syrian women are making on various fronts, as well as to their selfless devotion, patience and steadfastness throughout the many years of the revolution.
The SOC cites the shining examples of courage, sacrifice, and heroism Syrian women have set throughout their struggle against tyranny, thousands of whom became detainees, fallen heroes, or mothers of fallen heroes and detainees. They have braved the various types of oppression and crimes, showing unwavering determination, and are still continuing their revolution against the murderous Assad regime.
Syrian women will remain the pilar that holds thousands of households together. They will also remain a safe haven and a source of hope for rebuilding the Syrian society and its cohesive fabric.
We stand in awe of the tremendous sacrifices Syrian women are making. We also pay tribute to the activists who are struggling at various levels and providing revolutionary, civil and social initiatives and following up on relief and assistance efforts, especially those related to women and children.
The shining example that Syrian women have set for the past ten years of the revolution qualifies them to assume a lofty position in the decision-making, implementation and administration circles. We are confident that Syrian women are capable of making valuable contributions to building Syria’s present and to shaping its future.
