Activists women from Amuda demand the protection of women's rights in the constitution

Ezdina Organization held its ninth dialogue sessions within the project "A Constitution That Protects Us" for women, civil activists and media figures in the city of Amuda, in North and East of Syria, at Kulturvan Center, where they discussed the Syrian Constitutional Committee and women's demands and proposals for drafting a new constitution for Syria.

The co-chair of the Yazidi House in Amuda, Laila Mahmo, said that organizing such sessions is very important for women to learn about their rights and to know how to participate in the drafting of Syria's new constitution.

Mahmo added that it is important for all Syrian components to participate in drafting the constitution, because the Syrian state is rich in its components, and all components have the right to obtain their rights in the state in which they live.

Mahmo pointed out that women constitute not only half of society, but three quarters of society, because when women obtain their rights to education, they contribute to the development of their society as a whole.

Mahmo stressed the importance of protecting women's rights in the constitution, provided that their participation rate in drafting the constitution should be 50 percent, equally with men.

For her part, the head of the Women's Economy Committee in the city of Amuda, Suad Na'asan, said that the session contributed to identifying different opinions and ideas of women in North and East Syria.

Na'asan added that women can do and work in any field if they want, pointing to the victories that women have achieved in the Rojava region in terms of military, political and economic terms.

Na'asan indicated that a woman can change herself and influence those around her.

In turn, the co-chair of Radio Suryoyo FM, Maria Hanna, said that the session, which was held by Ezdina regarding the recommendations of Syrian women in the new Syrian constitution, included good opinions from the participating women, and new ideas, as the participating women expressed their awareness of the rights and duties as a Syrian citizen.

Hanna stressed the importance of not excluding women's role in drafting the country's constitution and their participation in political and decision-making centers.

Hanna added that there should be more representation of women in the constitutional committee in order for them to participate in drafting the constitution.

Hanna indicated that the women and young women participating in the session showed their ideas regarding women's rights, as women reached a stage of good awareness of women's rights after the outbreak of the Syrian movement in general and after the establishment of the Autonomous Administration in North and East Syria in particular.

Hanna pointed out that women realized that they are citizens who have the right to vote, run an office, make decisions, set the constitution and the law, pointing out that women need additional efforts to start on their own and move towards their goals and ambition.

Hanna indicated that there is exclusion of a large number of components, races, religions, or even the woman herself in the current constitutional committee, adding that those in the constitutional committee from Syriacs and Christians do not represent all the Syriac people in Syria, as well as for the Kurds, Yazidis or any other components.

It is noteworthy that Ezdina launched a new project, in Northeastern Syria, under the title "A Constitution That Protects Us", starting from February 23, 2021, for a period of three months.
