Sexual Violence Awareness Quilt & The Bandana Project
Webster University’s Counseling Center makes quilt for Sexual Violence Awareness.
The quilt is a collection of students, staff, and faculty voices against rape, harassment,
bullying stalking, and gender discrimination.
The Bandana Project was launched by Esperanza; the Immigrant Women’s Legal Initiative of the Southern Poverty Law Center in June 2007 to raise awareness about workplace sexual violence. Webster University’s Counseling Center has participated in the project since 2010 to speak out against sexual violence. In 2015, the center gathered many of the pieces to make a quilt for Sexual Violence Awareness. The quilt is a collection of students, staff, and faculty voices against rape, harassment, bullying, stalking, and gender discrimination.
The Bandanas represent the voices against violence. The Pins represent the pain a survivor experiences physical, verbal, or sexually. The Clothespins represents the connection that we all have to this issue. We are all connected in this issue, as a campus, a community, and a nation. The Squares are the voices of Webster University speaking out. Teal color of the quilt represents sexual assault awareness.
The quilt was developed and constructed by Gladys Smith, Assistant Director of Counseling and Sexual Assault Advocate for Webster University in April 2015. The squares were collected throughout the year at various programs at Webster University.
