For more information on the Clothesline Project, please visit: The Clothesline Project - Fighting Violence Against Women. Following is some general information from its website: ”The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issues of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. The participants then hang their shirts on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread worldwide.”
