International Women’s day started in the early 20th century to celebrate the advancement of women’s rights and to promote the continued progress of women’s role in all societies. Syrian women have played a vital role in bringing freedom and democracy to Syrians. They have taken up the role of activist, such as Razan Zaitouneh, who works with lawyers and human rights activists to spread the Syrian crisis internationally. She was a key leader in the formation of the Local Coordination Committees. Then there is Suheir Atassi, who began as a local political activist. She is now the co-vice-president of the opposition government.
