The SFJN is a nonprofit association, registered in The Netherlands since 2013.

It seeks to build bridges between media and the Syrian women’s movement by enhancing and empowering both females and males working in the field of media, by empowering female journalists to take over leading positions in their institutions, and by activating the role of the media in raising social awareness concerning gender equality and women’s issues. The SFJN also works on improving the representation of women in the media to achieve a Syrian society that is fair to all of its male and female citizens, and to realize a positive social change in thinking and behavior with respect to matters surrounding gender justice and equality.
