Through a local group set up by the local authority to strengthen and empower the voice of women in Rotherham, in 2018 ROAR were commissioned to make three marching banners with community groups to be taken on the Reclaim the Night walk through the town centre in November, celebrating women’s rights. The banners were to represent Rotherham women Past, Present and Future. 

Groups included Wales High School, Rainbow Project, Grow, and Timebuilders. 

This was building on our experience of creating a banner for International Women’s Day with different groups of women across the borough and the Rotherham Matters banner made here at ROAR by the textile group On Point.
