From the Curator

Randy Jayne Rosenberg, executive director of the nonprofit group Art Works for Change, is the exhibit's curator. Read an excerpt from the Curator Statement below.

"Throughout the world, women and girls are victims of countless and senseless acts of violence. The range of gender-based violence is devastating, occurring, quite literally, from womb to tomb. It occurs in every segment of society, regardless of class, ethnicity, culture, or whether the country is at peace or war. Often, the victim's only crime is that she is female."
