DETAILS:

The Family Violence Consortium of Manitoba invites everyone to join us as we pay tribute to the Silent Witnesses. The Silent Witness initiative consists of a traveling exhibit of life-sized, free-standing, red, wooden silhouettes. Each silhouette represents a woman who was murdered by her intimate partner and whose partner has been convicted of the murder or where both died in a murder/suicide.

Because these women no longer have a voice, the silhouettes are called the Silent Witnesses.

The Silent Witness Project began as an American initiative which has grown to include all 50 states and 30 countries. Canada’s Silent Witness Project began in 2005 and each year Manitoba holds our own Silent Witness Memorial for the women of Manitoba who are no longer with us.
