MIT Clothesline Project on display April 8-12

April 5, 2013

The MIT Clothesline Project will be on display in the Student Center from Monday through Friday, April 8th through April 12th, 2013. The  Clothesline Project is also in need of more shirts to full the space that has been allotted, and welcomes anyone who wants to make a shirt or contribute. The Clothesline Project (CLP) 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 by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.  MIT created their own Clothesline Project in 2010. Those interested in making a shirt should come pick up a package of supplies from Kelley M. Adams in E23-205 or E23-205.  For more information about the Clothesline Project, visit the website.
