Human Rights Violations against Women and Girls in Syria

08.07.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This report sheds light on the multiple human rights violations that Syrian girls and women  are witnessing, inside the country, and while fleeing the conflict as refugees. It focuses on issues such as: women and girls’  access to education; access to healthcare; gender-based violence; forced and early marriage; and "honour" crimes. The report also addresses the discriminatory laws against women in Syria, and the importance of the implementation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325, in order to guarantee Syrian women a place in peace negotiations and reconstruction process.
