Syrian Women’s Union


Aaccording to Aman, recently (2003), the Syrian Women’s Union sponsored a study on Violence and Discrimination against Women in Syria.

The study was conducted by two researchers, Najwa Kassab Hasan (Head of the Research and Planning Bureau, and the Bureau of Central Statistics) and Raghda Ahmad (Head of the Central Legal and Health Bureaus).

Information was collected through interviews with 240 battered women and women who suffered from forms of discrimination by their families and the general society.

The study describes the profile of women victims of violence and discrimination in Syria and points out to the prevalence of these situations in the family whereas both the Constitution and the Civil Codes safeguard equal treatment of men and women in the community.
