YEZIDI WOMEN: ISIS SURVIVORS

Exhibition in the Houses of Parliament

 

Hannah's portrait paintings of Yezidi women were exhibited in the Upper Waiting Hall of the Houses of Parliament in March 2018, to advocate on behalf of the Yezidi community.

In the exhibition, Hannah’s portraits are placed directly alongside the self-portraiture of the women themselves in a striking juxtaposition. 

Theresa May spoke in the UK Parliament: “I’m very happy to welcome this awareness-raising exhibition that is taking place and to commend Hannah Rose Thomas and others involved in bringing to the attention of the House, and those visiting the House, the plight of the Yezidi women.”

The exhibition was sponsored by Rt Hon Dame Caroline Spelman MP and Open Doors and has also been shown in the Department for International Development (DfID) May 2018.
