Artwork Description:

The dress is to honor those women that have been forgotten through the years. The names on the skirt are women that were murdered going back to 1900 from all over USA and Canada. I found their names in the archived newspapers. Each section includes the woman's name, age at death and the year their body was found. The sash has names of girls/women that have gone missing within the past year here in Oklahoma and that were still missing as of March of 2020.
