Amal (30, still living in the countryside of Syria) is a former teacher, feminist and freedom fighter in Syria. She tries to fill her life with positive energy while fighting for her ideals: gender equality, room for alternative thoughts and self-development. Even though she covered her face, she recently got recognized during a demonstration and betrayed. She was fired. ––––– #Womenofsyria tells the stories of real Syrian women. Not refugees, but the ones that stayed behind. The project uses illustrations instead of photos mainly because the women are afraid of being exposed to the regime of Assad.
