Like thousands of other Syrian women who escaped to Lebanon, they are now hiding in small villages within a few kilometers of the border, at the mercy of the Hezbollah and secret service agents allied with the Assad regime.
Ignored by the Lebanese government, which refuses to recognize them as refugees, they cannot work and raise money for their families. Separated from their relatives and friends, unable to send their kids to school, some are even starting to question the outcome of the Syrian revolution, regretting the peaceful life they used to live before the Arab Spring.
We have collected the personal stories and pictures of more than twenty Syrian women, recording their feelings of grief, bitterness and hope for the future of their country. All of them are shown with their faces covered, to protect their safety.
