Locating clean water and food, threats of domestic violence, threats of harassment and assault in the streets, and caring for their families are everyday issues Syrian women face as of 2015. Millions of Syrian women and their families have been forced to seek shelter and safety in refugee camps.
The Syrian Civil War began in the spring of 2011 as a result of protestation of President Bashar al-Assad's government. The protesters were met with violence, thus inciting the formation of stronger rebellions and ultimately cultivating a self-formed military of civilians, coined in the media as "rebel groups." The escalation of this conflict has gradually created a state of crisis in Syria, turning women and their families into refugees.
