Balls of wool against gender-based violence is a collective project that is creating an art piece through knitting-groups meetings where to raise awareness against sexist violence. A sorority space to work, create and struggle against discrimination and inequality

SORIROTY Testimonials

Since 2014, we have been teamed up with women from many autonomous communities and different countries in a space of learning and awareness, where to perform critical analysis and improve women’s reality all over the world.

Associations from Italy, Russia, Portugal, Mexico, England, Tunisia, Argentina -among some of those that came to us and keep on coming-, help us to bring the project’s threads to regions where the struggle for women’s equality is in different stages, but share a common commitment and a common determination.

As an example of sorority, participation is an essential axis of this initiative.

Since 2014 the Basque organization Harituz has worked with the project Madejas contra la violencia sexista – Skeins against gender-related violence. Its artistic symbol – a giant and constantly growing scarf – travels around the world with the aim of one day covering the EU parliament in Brussels. Today the whole scarf is almost 5 km long.
