Women have achieved a social renaissance

Elizabeth who was elected as a member of the preparatory committee of 9 representatives of women's components and organizations to prepare the relevant documents of the Council indicated that they would take into account women's proposals during the meeting, work to unify the efforts of women to establish a free democratic Syria, and that women have a major role to write the constitution of new Syria, preserve the benefits and gains which had been achieved in the north and east of Syria, and that they would struggle to take their rightful place in decision-making and preserve the privacy of women as well.

"Great hopes are incumbent upon Women's Council in north and east Syria to preserve women's inheritance in the region, the legacy of martyrs Arin Mirkan, Avista Khabur, and Dad Yunnan.
