A Massive Quilt to raise the issue of Violence Against Women


Change MakersChange Makers from all the six South Asian nations stitched a huge quilt carrying messages to combat violence against women on the second day of the three-day Change Makers Assembly in Colombo, Sri Lanka today.

“We are united against violence,” “Stop violence against women,” “Stop Honour killings,” – these were some of the thousands of slogans scribbled in several south Asian languages on the several metres long quilt. Pieces of this massive quilt had been stitched in different countries and brought here and put together into a massive quilt. Later at the sessions, change makers exchanged ideas and experiences about their work and plans.
