The Women's Council issued a written statement in conjunction with March 8th , the International Women's Day.
The statement congratulated at the beginning all the women of the world on this occasion, and recalled "all the leading martyrs who left their mark on the history pages of struggle for women's freedom such as (Rosa Luxemburg, Clara Zinkin, Leila Qassem, Sara, Lecrine, Arin, Barin, Haverin)."
"Recalling this day is a reminder of women's militant heritage and the completion of their struggle, because the leading role they have played in all aspects of life attests to them and makes them the focus of all the authoritarian and colonial forces, to receive the bulk of the persecution in the light of the conflicts that have been going on over the years," the statement added. This appeared clearly during the years of the Syrian revolution, which turned into a global crisis as a result of the intervention of the most regional and global states to serve their interests at the expense of the Syrian people. The first victim was women, where they were subjected to various kinds of violence and persecution at the hands of Takfiri groups and Salafism, particularly in the northeastern regions of Syria."
The statement noted that women in northeastern Syria "have become the maker of freedom and life. They have proven themselves during the nine years of the revolution that they have strong will and were able to organize their efforts in various field such as political , social, cultural and economic, and protect their gains and achievements, namely, "The revolution of change and the transition from authoritarian and slave society to a free democratic society is under way."
The Women's Council in northeastern Syria called for "the need to unite the efforts of women in all parts of the world to stop the bloodshed, spread peace and protect the achievements".
