"The Clothesline Project is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of gender based violence. 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 to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of gender based violence. With the support of many, it has since spread world-wide.

The Clothesline Project honors women survivors, as well as victims of intimate violence. Anyone who has experienced such violence, at any time in her life, is encouraged to come forward and design a shirt. Victim's and/or survivor's families and friends are also invited to participate.

It is the very process of designing a shirt that gives each woman a new voice with which to expose an often horrific and unspeakable experience that has dramatically altered the course of her life. Participating in this project provides a powerful step towards helping a survivor break through the shroud of silence that has surrounded her experience."

Volunteers must be active listeners and provide those who design t-shirts a safe space to create and heal.
PerksDesigning a shirt allows survivors to break their silence about interpersonal violence. Volunteers get to take part in that healing process.
