Women showcase their talents at handicraft exhibition in Erbil
Some 50 Kurdish women are showcasing and selling their handicrafts at an exhibition in honor of International Women's Day.
The Nishtiman Youth Network (NYN) in coordination with the Erbil Citadel administration has launched a three day exhibition for girls and women to show their talents in handcrafting.
Any profits made from their sales are theirs to keep.
The exhibition started on Thursday, March 8 and will run through Saturday, March 10.
Iman Mohammed, a member of NYN added that a "giant concert will be held by Hazhar Zahawi and Asal Malikzadah” on the last day of the exhibition.
"The aim of the activity is for talented women to show their abilities so that other women can learn to rely on themselves," she said.
