ROSE supports women's memorial making/violence prevention
We have been involved in women's memorial making since December 6, 1989. Women's memorial activism expresses our love for women and girls who have been murdered and for all women and girls everywhere.
We keep the memory of our sisters in view. We shine a light believing that over time, our public acts of remembrance could prevent violence by valuing women and girls thereby changing society for the better.
What changes for women would you like to see happen?
Equality and freedom.
In a speech she gave in Vancouver, Kate Millet said that violence is the power base of patriarchy. We agree, and see active resistance to violence against women and all forms of violence prevention as crucial to the liberation of girls and women from assault, threats, torture and murder.
