This research paper was prepared in the framework of the Scientific Research Support Program, funded by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Open Society Foundation. The paper presents a brief account of the history of the intellectual and political feminist movement in Syria about 100 years ago until the beginning of the Arab Spring in the Arab countries. The research aims to identify the historical background of the feminist movement in Syria, and to monitor the philosophy and trends of feminism in the Arab spring revolutions, as well as to identify the position of the Syrian movement with regard to Arab feminist mobilization. The research also tries to explore Syrian women’s current choices and the way they’ve been influenced by the surrounding environment, on socio-economic and social levels.
