Feminists Install Temporary Memorial to Rape Survivors on Washington Mall





by Sarah Mirk on February 15, 2013 - 10:34am


The National Mall got a new memorial yesterday, if only briefly. As part of One Billion Rising, Baltimore-based feminist group FORCE installed a temporary memorial recognizing survivors of sexual assault. The group greated giant letters out of a statement from a rape survivor and floated the eight-foot-tall words onto the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
