A Village Without Men

Jinwar, a women-only village in northern Syria was built as a self-sustaining commune “free of the constraints of the oppressive power structures of patriarchy and capitalism,” according to resident Zainab Gavary. “There’s no need for men here, our lives are good. This place is just for women who want to stand on their feet.” The community of women came together in the shadow of the shared trauma of wartime violence.
