SUPPORT THE MEMORY OF MISSING AND MURDERED ABORIGINAL WOMEN
The Red Dresses are strung up along Main Street each one representing a missing or murdered aboriginal woman. The dresses are an aesthetic response drawing attention to the nature of violent crimes against aboriginal women. The installation seeks to evoke a presence through the marking of absence.
The Women's Memorial March began in Vancouver in 1991 and has since spread to other communities, with Flin Flon joining in 2014. The red dresses were added in 2016 as part of the REDress Project, which aims to further raise public awareness.
