Clothesline Project begins September 13


GWC will be hosting The Clothesline Project, a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women, next week in the Central Quad. During our public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts, each one decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience, by a survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.

The first clothesline was hung in 1990 in Massachusetts and has since spread to communities across the country and other countries as well. GWC will host a week-long installation of a clothesline with T-shirts decorated with messages of emotion and hope.

We encourage you to get involved in the movement by decorating a T-shirt at the Consent Fair on September 13th from 10:00am-1:00pm that will be added to the installation! For more information on this event, contact the GWC Intercultural Program at
