Participatory Economy

THE WOMEN’S THE WOMEN’S Economic Committee was established in 2015 in order to build a democratic social economy. It serves the needs of women and of all of Northern Syrian society, and works to build a new model “for effort and value.” This model will revive the culture of collective economics in all communities, and thus will ensure that all people have the economic support they need to thrive. The economy takes in complimentary support, based on the principle that “an economy without capital is possible, but a capital without an economy isn’t possible.” Strengthening women’s self-confidence in economic matters ensures that women can reach an economic independence which is necessary for the struggle for freedom as well as confronting capitalism.
