This study, conducted in two local communities – Sarmada and Kafr Takharim – in the northwest of Syria in the fall of 2021, engaged 127 women in an effort to understand the primary challenges these women IDPs face and to investigate how they engage with political and public institutions to address these challenges. Using surveys and focus groups, we found that with traditional male breadwinners absent, women must now take on the role of providing financially for their entire household while juggling the load of household management and the raising of children. Conflict and displacement has heightened the presence of danger and violence in everyday life, making commutes and public spaces more fraught.
