The Monument Quilt, New York

In August 21st, 2014 New York City witnessed an historic event: the display of The Monument Quilt, a crowd-sourced collection of thousands of stories from survivors of rape and abuse. By stitching our stories together, we are creating and demanding public space to heal and building a new culture where survivors are publicly supported, rather than publicly shamed. Larger than two basketball courts put together, The Monument Quilt was displayed at Queens Museum as part of Force: Upsetting Rape Culture´s summer 12- city tour across the United States.

Bordando Historias - Stitching stories - NYC & Mexico City

A series of workshops for Latin women and their children were facilitated during July and August 2014 to design the quilts that will be part of The Monument Quilt, a collection of thousands of stories of survivors of rape aimed to create and demand public spaces to heal. These workshops were organized in New York by Immigrant Movement International and Violence Intervention Program, Inc. (VIP Women) and in Mexico City by La Casa Mandarina where survivors wanted to support and join their voice to the summer 12- city tour across the United States.
