In view of the Brussels VII Conference on “Supporting the future of Syria and the region”, Syria Gender Advocacy Group (GAG) and EuroMed Feminist Initiative (EFI) organised a side-event on 9 June 2023 on “The role of Syrian Women’s Rights Organisations in the Future of Syria and the Region” and alert the international community on the precarious situation of women and girls as they continue to bear the brunt of the protracted Syrian crisis.
Given the conviction of the importance of the Brussels Donors Conference as a strategic platform that allows to amplify the voices of Syrian women inside and outside Syria, the side- event emphasized the key and indispensable role Syrian women’s rights organizations and local women initiatives play, despite all the challenges they face, in advocating, assisting and coordinating all efforts towards highlighting and addressing the multiple needs of women.
The side event underlined the vital importance of the participation of Syrian women’s rights organizations and local women initiatives in all places where decisions are made and policies designed for the future of Syria, to ensure that women ́s needs are considered, and no one is left aside.
