The Silent Witness Exhibit

The purpose of the exhibit is to make visible the problems of domestic violence in order to eliminate domestic murders by the year 2010.


Our exhibit here at Central Washington consists of 10 life-size silhouettes of women. These figures represent real Washington State people.  A shield with one woman’s story has been attached to each silhouette.  The information includes the woman’s name, age and date of death, where she lived, an account of how she was murdered and information about the outcome or legal status of the case.  The silhouettes are made of plywood and painted red.  Each has a stand so that they can be displayed together as a visual demonstration of the tragedy of domestic violence.

This exhibit is hosted at Central Washington University in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Located in the SURC Main floor.
