Profile Information

If this applies to you, please describe your involvement in women's memorial making/violence prevention?
We are a group of women who are activists, filmmakers, educators and so on who have been involved in memorial making and want to help mentor others to make women's memorials. At the same time we want to encourage violence prevention whenever we can. We believe women's memorial activism is a form of violence prevention that, over time, will gradually change society for the better.
If this applies to you, what is the name of your group or project or memorial? (Or is it now ROSE?)
ROSE - Remember Our Sisters Everywhere. A project of the Richmond Women's Resource Centre.
If applicable, how long have you been involved in women's memorial making/violence prevention?
About 25 years.
What changes for women would you like to see happen?
Equality and freedom.
Kate Millet once said in a speech she gave in Vancouver that violence is the power base of patriarchy. We agree, and we see active resistance to violence against women and all forms of violence prevention as crucial to the liberation of girls and women from the threat of and the actuality of assault, torture and murder.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I just added my video (so glad you liked it) and yes, I would be thrilled for you to announce it through ROSE. It will be on YouTube for the entire month of December. (At some point, I'll look into what I need to do to offer it for sale on iTunes, but it will always be available for free viewing on YouTube in December.) I look forward to exploring this website and getting to know the people here. As my friend Marsha always said: "Live, Love, Laugh."
