Today is International Women's Day but in Syria, women have been the silent victims of the ongoing eight-year war. 

An all-female international convoy started a three-day journey across Turkey from Istanbul to raise awareness about the suffering of women imprisoned by the Syrian regime. 

It's due to arrive in the southern province of Hatay on Thursday. 

TRT World's Shamim Chowdhury met some of the participants, as they started their trip.
