SAS Special Projects & Calendar of Events
What is the Clothesline Project? The Clothesline Project is a visual display of shirts representing women survivors and victims of violence such as rape, sexual assault, dating violence and domestic violence. The shirts have graphic messages and drawings created by survivors or by someone who knows/loves a women who is a survivor or became a victim of violence.
This project originated in Massachusetts in the fall of 1990. It now encompasses more than 500 communities and several foreign countries. It is a visual tribute to the courage of all women and a means of bringing the barbarity of these crimes to the forefront.
The purpose of the project is four-fold.
- 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.
- To educate, document, and raise society's awareness of the extent of the problem of violence against women.
- To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement, and information for other communities starting their own Clothesline Projects.
Southeast Indiana has a "traveling" Clothesline Project. SAS volunteers and staff travel to various public locations displaying the Clothesline and providing survivors with materials to create their own.
