I create art to address the problems and challenges women encounter from birth to growing up, to marriage. I’m creating artwork to show the suffering women endure and obstacles that are often placed in front of them by society. I focus more on the problems of women in Kurdistan and the difficulties they have from the time they are born, grow up, and get married; I want to demonstrate them in my drawings. I wanted to demonstrate that women in Kurdistan did not have a chance to reach the level of professionalism as men in their work yet. The ghost on the left is always following and monitoring her, like a family who puts obstacles in front of her and does not want the girl to be successful. The people around her want her to be sad about her work and regret her career and not go on with the skills that she has to be what she wants.
