Samer (45 years old, living in Idlib, Syria) lives in a safe house on the countryside of Syria. There are many families living there in shelter, amongst them Samers children, her husband and his second wife. Men and women have seperate homes, which forces Samer to live in a small room together with her 'sister wife', whom she does not even like. The bathroom is the only place for couples to secretly meet up with each other, as it's the only place that is private. A couple of months ago her sister wife and their husband started meeting each other there, while Samer had to stand guard. Yes, it makes her sad, but what else should she do? It is her husband and he has his rights and needs, she says. It has become a sad part of Samers daily life in refuge. ––––– #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.
