As we slowly moved into the the exhibition there was no talking but more gasps at the shear scale of this exhibition. 546 panels stitched by over 600 people. After 125 years these women are still treasured for their hardship, resilience and determination, this is their memory.
I shed a tear looking from one panel to the next. It was overwhelming as each one seemed to find a voice.
I cherish this moment and congratulate every single person who was involved especially Caroline O’Reilly.
Thanks also to Wendy Welsh and Ryan Jennings for some of the photos
Its open until 31 August at the Wellington Museum.
