Yusif said two revolutions emerged in the time past: “As the peoples’ spring revolution was underway, a free women’s revolution happened in Northern and Eastern Syria so the male history would not repeat against women. With all the means at our disposal, we are working to create the organizations of women and a democratic society.”
Yusif said the reasons for the founding of the Northern and Eastern Syrian Women’s Assembly was: “Women are still subjected to tyranny and torture, women are still murdered. As such, our revolution is still in the beginning phase. The founding of the assembly is part of the continuation of the women’s struggle.”

The democratic Syria to be founded under our unity will influence the whole of the Middle East. As YPJ forces, we celebrate this congress for all our martyrs of the revolution.”
