About the Womens Quilt
The Womens Quilt was made to commemorate the 598 women killed by their current/former partner between 2009 and 2015, according to the data from the Femicide Consensus (Womens Aid, 2017). This quilt was founded by Roxanne Ellis who started off this project with a Facebook group. She added a few friends who added a few friends and it soon gained interested. It really was amazing to see men and women working together on this quilt and having patches sent in from all across the world! The Quilt has opened up many personal and important conversations which are now happening between the Quilters and its audiences.

Its approximately 2 women a week that are killed by a former/current partner (Office of National Statistics, 2015). This is a horrific reality. These women could have been us, they are our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and colleagues. The Quilt is a reminder that each woman is not just a number but a name. Each patch was made with a lot of love and care to the attention of the womans personality. Quite often her own life is overlooked when the media reports her death and instead the media focuses on the murderer and their life. This is a massive travesty that essentially these women are written out of their own stories by the media and are often made a footnote in their own murder. This Quilt is as one of our volunteers said is the most beautiful thing that shouldnt exist.
