The I Am She campaign focuses on the role of women in Syrian society.
Last updated: July 2016

The I Am She campaign was launched by activists from within the besieged city of Zabadani. It was initiated by the Center for Civil Society and Democracy in Syria and focuses on the role of women in Syrian society, and highlights freedom, justice, and active participation in society. It aims to highlight the importance of women's impact on Syrian society and their role in building a post-conflict, democratic society.

Description of activities

  • Most important work so far has been the campaign to end the siege on Zabadani, where the women put forth a proposal for a long-term truce between the regime and opposition forces.
  • "Sada Zabadaniyat" which was started by the local women to talk about their daily lives in the city.
  • Monthly magazine called “Suwar” with content focusing on the reconstruction and civil society, education and health, and the development of rural women’s skills.
  • Post-trauma workshops for previously detained women who suffered from physical and psychological abuse as well as workshops on the integration of women in society.
