This oil pastel picture was created by Afghani refugee and feminist Sweeta Durrani for International Women's Day 2021. She entitled it "They Let Us Go and We Hugged Each Other Tighter" to demonstrate the love, and power of women's networks of support both in Afghanistan and the UK - and also the world.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
