April 4 - Clothesline Progrject @ TTU RUC Room. Call for directions.
The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular women's experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.You can come by the Women's Center during office hours to leave a shirt for the display or to make one.
The Clothesline Project started with thirty-one shirts hung in Hyannis, Massachusetts in the fall of 1990. Since that time, projects have been started in communities all across the U.S. and in other countries .The TTU Women's Center has been involved since 1998. Our collection is generally displayed in the RUC for one day in April during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
