Women make up half of Syria's population, yet they are often invisible in the political and media discussions taking place since the conflict began two years ago. Now, mothers, wives and daughters are increasingly becoming weapons of war on the frontline of the battle between government forces and the opposition. So, what is the role of women in the Syrian conflict? To discuss this, Inside Syria with presenter Hazem Sika is joined by guests: Afra Jalabi, a member of the Syrian National Coalition; Aida Dalati, a Syrian-American activist and author; and Hanadi Assoud, a member of Hands Off Syria, a group of Syrians who support the government and defy any foreign intervention in the country.
