Mosaics - The Women's Journey

Reclaim the Night Geelong Mosaic Art

‘Women’s Journey from inequality, sexism, discrimination and violence to gender equality and respectful relationships’

Women of the Barwon region as part of the Barwon Month of Action: Stop Men’s Violence against Women 2015 have participated in developing the concept of ‘The Women’s Journey’ and created images that formed the steps of the journey.

Bunnings at Waurn Ponds and North Geelong have greatly assisted this project by conducting the women’s sessions where many women helped to mosaic these steps of the journey.

Two installations of the Women’s Journey were created:

7 pavers that resides in the garden outside Belmont Library,

the other will be travelling around to Neighbourhood and customer centres in the region along with information about violence against women and women’s rights inviting the community to become part of the solution.  St. Luke’s Men’s shed Highton have been central in creating the frame for this mobile installation.

‘The Women’s Journey’ has been conceived in six parts each of these depicting an important part of the journey. These represent the following themes:

1)    Inequality, discrimination, sexism

2)    1 in 3 women experience violence or abuse

3)    Connecting, support and working together

4)    Feminism, anti-oppressive work and struggle for change

5)    Transformation, empowerment and freedom

6)    Equality and respectful relationships
