President Obama got a short reprieve when Russia put forward a plan to avoid a U.S. missile strike on Syria by sequestering Syria’s chemical weapons. In the constant administration drumbeat for military action, too many people have been saying the only other option is doing nothing. But Syrian women have a better plan. Even as the Russian-U.S. talks are looking for a solution that avoids a U.S. attack, Syrian women are campaigning to reframe the options altogether. The Syrian Women’s Forum for Peace is working for a democratic Syrian state through peaceful means.
