Description

The Syrian Feminist Lobby was launched in July 2014 in Istanbul by Syrian women’s rights and political activists from different political backgrounds in order to strengthen the participation of Syrian women in political decision making that influences the future of their country.
SFL is an independent, non-party political lobby group committed to equal participation of women and men in all political decision making processes concerning the future of Syria at all levels. SFL believes that democracy cannot be built without respect and full implementation of women's rights as universal human rights, and the principles of equality between women and men in the public and private spheres.
The vision of the Syrian Feminist Lobby is that of Syria as a democratic pluralistic civil state, committed to the universal human rights of women and men, and committed to a Syrian society free from discrimination based on ethnicity, sex, class, or religion, wherein the principles of social justice and full equality between women and men are achieved and women and men participate on equal footage in making decisions for their lives and for the future of their country.
