International Solidarity with Iraqi and Syrian Women’s Human Rights Advocates against ISIL
WASHINGTON - Women in Iraq and Syria are the targets of brutal oppression and sexual attacks perpetrated by ISIL. From January 26-28, in Istanbul, Turkey, a landmark event will convene Iraqi and Syrian women's rights advocates working to protect survivors and to document evidence of sexual violence and rape as a weapon of war. As representatives of government and civil society, we join these courageous leaders to support their lifesaving work and as allies determined to end sexual violence in conflict.
