Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman's experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.

The purpose of the project is:

  • To bear witness to the survivors as well as the victims of the war against women.
  • To help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved one or are survivors of violence.
  • To educate, document, and raise society's awareness to the extent of the problem of violence against women.

The Clothesline Project is a National Network of community displays.

    • Each community Clothesline Project is unique.
    • The project is made up of groups of people from all backgrounds.
    • We stand together committed to challenging our outward and internalized homophobia, racism, sexism, and all other oppressions.
    • We make connections between these acts of violence and the violence we experience as women.
Contact the Willow Volunteer Coordinator to make a shirt or have the Clothesline Project displayed at your function.


Providing community education is an important and forward-looking step in our quest to eliminate violence in our world. Only through truly understanding the social disease that is domestic violence can we truly begin to fight it! That is why we make it so easy for you to request a presentation, training, info table, support group, information display, or anything else we could collaborate on! 


We are prepared to present to your group on any topic that is domestic violence related. Here is a list of many of our prepared topics. We can provide simply general information about domestic violence, focus on a more specific topic related to your group, or include many different topics that interest you!
