FORCE – Upsetting Rape Culture

Visit on the web

FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture is a creative activist collaboration to upset the culture of rape and promote a culture of consent. FORCE believes that a more difficult and honest conversation needs to happen in America to face the realities of sexual violence, and they envision a world where sex is empowering and pleasurable rather than coercive and violent. To promote this needed conversation, FORCE creates art actions to generate media attention and get millions of people talking. FORCE’s current project is the Monument Quilt, an on-going collection of stories from survivors of rape and abuse on red quilt squares. The quilt builds a new culture where survivors are publicly supported, rather than publicly shamed. After touring the country as the project grows, the Monument Quilt will blanket the National Mall in fall 2017.
