The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to violence targeted against women. The Clothesline t-shirts are individually designed and crafted to publicly express the personal experience of a survivor. The shirts share her words, her story, and her emotions. The Clothesline provides a safe forum for women to speak about the abuse and to educate the public about the extent, prevalence, and impact of violence against women.
