Clothesline Project

About the Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project 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. The Clothesline Project takes place multiple times during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

What is the Clothesline Project?
Students and community members are able to create a shirt that allows each survivor, friends, or family members to tell their own story. It allows those who are still suffering in silence to understand that they are not alone. After you create a shirt, you are able to take that shirt with you or hang it on our clothesline.

Who can participate?
Anyone in the UNT or Denton Community.
