Many women in Syria have decided to join the revolution, and become ''free women'', or Haraeer, as they call themselves in Arabic.
Lina is one such activist. The 29-year-old works in a Syrian field hospital, documenting patients as they are admitted.
The information they gather is then passed on to the international media.
