Yazbek, who before the war was a journalist, and a well-known TV presenter, is also a writer, and in Paris became a social activist. She established “Women now for Development“. In this association, which already has “a network of 10,000 women”, all decisions are taken “collegially” says Yazbek, convinced that “if something is left of Syria” after the war, civil organizations will be “essential to rebuild the country.”
