Speaking at the meeting, Rohan Mistefa, co-chair of North and East Syria Universities Committee, said that women have organised in every field since the Rojava Revolution, and added: “Thanks to this revolution, women have been waging a great struggle against the patriarchal mentality. Women have paid heavy prices, because, they have not only fought against the attacks, but also struggled against old and conservative mentalities and traditions.”
