The revolution in Rojava continues to develop geographically and deepen socially. The fact that a revolution based on political autonomy and women’s rights is flourishing at this time and in this region is a source of inspiration for many people across the world. But how is the revolution actually spreading and beyond the frontlines what does life look like in the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria?
