BACKGROUND

The ROSE website champions a cultural shift towards the remembrance and valuing of the women we have lost to violence. When all of us - mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends - remember those women we have lost, we acknowledge the vulnerability, and the value, of the lives of all women.

Over the past twenty years, we have witnessed across Canada the birth of over sixty women's memorials, from marches to monuments, as well as thousands of yearly vigils. The ROSE website will carry this legacy online and around the world to deepen their impact on public consciousness.

The murder of women is one of the harshest realities of our time. Remembering can be painful - but forgetting hurts us more.

Throughout the world atrocities against women are perpetrated daily: women are raped and murdered in the Sudan; killed in deliberately set kitchen fires in India; disappeared and murdered in Juarez, Mexico; gunned down in public institutions in North America; suffer domestic violence in Russia; are tortured and murdered by serial killers in Vancouver and in every country
in the world; trafficked for sex globally; and 60 million women and girls are “missing” from the world today as a result of sex-selective abortions and female infanticide. Despite the great weight of the problems we are addressing, we believe that the ideas represented by the memorial movement in Canada will
have a positive international influence on the struggle to end violence against women, especially when published on the World Wide Web.

As the virtual community grows, we will mentor new memorial makers through the forums on the site and generate and explore ways to prevent violence and challenge those attitudes that operate at the deepest levels of society, and which lead to violence against women.

ROSE, formerly the Global Women's Memorial, was developed by the National Film Board of Canada, Pacific-Yukon Region, and is now a project of Tides Canada Initiatives.

By remembering our sisters everywhere we work together to prevent violence. To contact the ROSE Committee: rememberoursisterseverywhere@gmail.com
