Over the years it has tirelessly worked to end sectarian violence in Northern Ireland, give support to victims of violence, allow women a voice in society and create a society rooted in mutual understanding and respect for diversity.This quilt, one of three made by the group, was made by thirty women from Ireland and beyond, in the context of the 25th Anniversary of "Women Together" (1970 - 1995).
