Women activists of Hasaka demand changes in the constitutional committee to include voices from North and East Syria

Ezdina Organization held its twelfth dialogue session within the project "A Constitution That Protects Us" for women, civil activists and media figures in the city of Hasaka, on May 31 at Al-Khabour Hall, for women, where they discussed the Syrian Constitutional Committee and women's demands and proposals for drafting a new constitution for Syria.

A member of the Yazidi House in Al-Jazeera Canton, Nalin Rasho, said that her demand as a Yazidi woman is equality between all components, and the right of Yazidis to identify themselves as a component that lives in this region.

Rasho added that she wants the Yazidis to have a representative in the Geneva conferences, in order to claim their legitimate rights like any other component.

Rasho pointed out that as a Yezidi and Kurdish woman, she should have her rights like others, ad she should work in any field in which anyone from another component can work.

In turn, the civil activist at the Solaf Center for Civil Activities, Laila Iskan, said that the idea of ​​the session held by Ezdina was distinctive, so that women would participate in re-drafting the new constitution for Syria, calling for the continuation of holding such sessions.

Iskan added that the topics of the Constitutional Committee and the drafting of the constitution are new, so what you know is information you read on the Internet, but the session actually discusses information about the Constitutional Committee and its members and how to participate in drafting the constitution.

Iskan indicated that as a Kurdish woman, she does not have a representative in the Constitutional Committee, nor does any entity represent her, calling for new changes to be made in the Constitutional Committee so that it can convey her voice and the voice of the people of Northeastern Syria with regard to drafting the constitution.

For her part, a member of the Syriac Women's Union, Rima Marsho, said that attending sessions on the drafting of the constitution in Northeastern Syria is valuable, because through them they were able to express their views as women from the feminist community and as participants in feminist civil institutions, regarding the constitution being drafted.

Marsho added that they have no representatives in the constitutional committees, and that the North and East of Syria were excluded from the committee.

Marsho pointed out the necessity of having representatives of all components from North and East of Syria, within the constitutional committee, to express the views of society and the people in general, because the constitution will be written for all components.

In turn, a member of the Center for Research and Educational Studies, Sherin Ibrahim, explained that the dialogue sessions have a positive impact in the future, because they contribute to the development of the role of women, and talk about the importance of their role in the constitution.

Ibrahim added that women have a great role in society, in presenting social and political opinions, and contributing to the development of the institutions in which they work in the future, and the development of the society in which they live as well.

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.
