“Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and we wanted to open the exhibition today as a proof of our existence and determination to continue, and our exhibition is a mosaic of paintings and oil paintings to convey a number of messages, where we presented what inside us as Syrian women are at the heart of the conflict. The exhibition will last a full day ”
