Red dresses highlight violence against indigenous women

The REDress Project by Jaime Black opened this month at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.

    An exhibition of 35 red dresses at a museum in Washington, DC, is highlighting crimes against Native American women.

    They are 10 times more likely to be murdered than the United States national average.

    The artist, Jaime Black, hopes the new exhibit at the Smithsonian prevents more women from going missing.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
