The first 'End Violence Against Women' (EVAW) exhibition is opening in London
The coalition was set up in 2005, to raise awareness and lobby the government with regards to the mistreatment and violence to women and girls, 2005, Campaigning at every level of government for better, more transparent approaches to ending and preventing violence against women and girls, the group also challenges the wider cultural attitudes that tolerate and condone abuse.
The first exhibition by the associated EVAW charity, is a collaboration of three artists- Jenny McIlhatton who uses her textiles background as a reflection of her personal healing trauma. Dannielle Hodson, who has taken inspiration from her BA in fashion and MA in fine art CSM and
Jessie Goodacre, who is currently living in New York painting portraits of actors and dancers.
It is vital that people are aware of this charity, and the help that is available, as violence against women and girls is not inevitable. The donations and support from this show will directly help women and girls who have experienced violence and harassment.
The works depict women in a positive light, and each artist is donating between 50-100% of profit to the charity; Hair salon Radio' is also donating a percentage from all clients during the time the exhibition is on.
