“The Rojava Revolution is a women’s revolution”
Northern Syrian Federation Executive Council Co-Presidency stressed that: “We will work with all that we have to let the principles of freedom and equality take root in the territories of the Northern Syrian Federation.”
Northern Syrian Federation Executive Council Co-Presidency has issued a written statement for November 25 and condemned all attacks against women.
The statement issued by the Executive Council Co-Presidency for November 25 International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women is as follows:
“In the 21st century, millions of women throughout the world have suffered violence, tyranny and oppression. To end this, and for the emancipation of women, the patriarchal system needs to be eliminated.
The Rojava Revolution is a women’s revolution. With the victories achieved in the revolution, thousands of women have been saved from ISIS tyranny. And with the legal efforts of the Autonomous Administration, women have achieved rights and been freed from a deep-set tyranny. Every day of our lives has thus turned into a day of fighting violence against women.
Women are the foundation in building a free society. The federal system has been formed on the basis of equality between men and women. In this framework, the Federal System uses a co-chair system accompanied by a 50% women’s quota. Our system is the system of free women and free men.
We will work with all that we have to let the principles of freedom and equality take root in the territories of the Northern Syrian Federation. We are calling on women and men who defend freedom to take part in the efforts to build the Federal System that will build the free life.”
