The Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against victims of domestic and sexual violence and stalking. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with the shirts. Each shirt is designed to represent a particular women’s experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.
The Purpose of the Project
- To bear witness to the survivors as well as the victims of the war against women.
- To help with the healing process for the people who have lost a loved one or are survivors of this violence
- To educate, document, and raise society’s awareness of the extent of the problem of violence against women.
When the Clothesline is Displayed
Voices Against Violence usually hosts Clothesline Projects each year in Plymouth NH during sexual assault awareness month and sometimes in October which is domestic violence awareness month.
New Hampshire’s AmeriCorps Victims Assistance Program hosts their clothesline during Victim’s rights week in Concord NH during the month of April.
