NATIONAL CLOTHESLINE PROJECT
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline.
The purpose of the Project is to increase awareness of the impact of violence against women, to celebrate a woman's strength to survive and to provide another avenue for her to courageously break the silence that often surrounds her experience.
With the support of many, it has since spread world-wide.
The Thumb Area Assault Crisis Center will have a clothesline up for display April 8 - 14, 2018.
