Doğadaki her ses ve her renk ancak ‘kadın’ olunca güzeldir. Nitekim insanlığın yaratıcısıdır, kadın.
* Dünya üzerindeki farklı dil, farklı renk ve farklı coğrafyalarda yaşayan bütün kadınların, daha çok değer görüldüğü ve daha güzel yarınlar bırakıldığı bir dünya umuduyla. Kadınlar gününüz kutlu olsun..
SYRIA. Aleppo governorate. June 9, 2016. Souad Hamidi removes her niqab after Syrian Democratic Forces took control of her village, on the outskirts of Manbij. Photographer Rodi Said: ‘When U.S.-backed forces seized Hamidi’s village in northern Syria from ISIS, the 19-year-old swiftly tore off the niqab she had been forced to wear since 2014 and smiled. “I felt liberated,” Hamidi said after swapping her black face-covering veil for a red headscarf. “They made us wear it against our will so I removed it that way to spite them.” I was heading to villages that had been retaken by SDF, and my arrival coincided with the arrival of Hamidi back to her home. Am Adasa had been under the militants’ control since 2014, when ISIS proclaimed its caliphate straddling Syria and Iraq. Under ISIS, life was strictly regulated, Hamidi said, including dress codes. “They would punish people who did not follow their rules, sometimes forcing them to stay in dug-out graves for days,” she said. “Since they (SDF) took control, we are living a new life.”
