The last month in North and East Syria has been marked by both positive and negative developments. Women‘s organisation of different ethnic groups has progressed to a very good level, work has been done to introduce laws guaranteeing women‘s rights and a strong stance has developed among women from different ethnic groups for women‘s unity. An international campaign for the freedom of Abdullah Ocalan has been launched and the women‘s movements in North and East Syria have also been strongly involved.
