Over 100,000 people are estimated to have died since the violence began, and more than two million have fled over the borders as refugees into Lebanon, Turkey,Egypt, Jordan and Iraq. A million of these refugees are children.”Un Named” is a girl of 11 prices her body at $7 negotiable. Her daily income averages $70 a day. There are similar cases of girls 12-13. Stories emerged of children being detained, tortured by, and even used as human shields by the security forces. In August 2013 chemical weapons were allegedly used against civilians.Children have witnessed massacres, mothers seen their sons killed, families watched their homes looted and burned. But there is one act of violence that refugees from the Syrian crisis will not discuss.The conflict has been distinguished by a brutal targeting of women. Some researchers have gathered evidence of systematic sexual assault of women and girls in Syria, and describes rape as “a weapon of war”. Outside the conflict, in sprawling camps and overloaded host communities,people have reported a soaring number of incidents of domestic violence and rampant sexual exploitation.But this is a deeply conservative society. The endemic violence suffered by Syrian women and girls is hidden under a cultural blanket of fear, shame and silence that even the community is loth to lift. Most women will not admit to being raped. They will say they have seen others being raped “This is a conservative area. If you have been raped, you wouldn’t talk openly about it because you would be stigmatized for your entire life. The phenomenon is massively under-reported,” Only after a long process of building trust through one-on-one counselling sessions might a rape survivor talk. Of the 300 to 400 cases clinics receive in a day, 100 are female victims of violence, mostly domestic. In a reversal of the cultural norm, many families here are headed by women. Fathers and husbands have either been killed or gone to fight. At least three-quarters of these families don’t live in houses but in nearby towns, where they quickly disappear beyond the reach of people and their resources. With no means to support themselves, they are vulnerable.
