About the National Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project (CLP) 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. Survivors hang shirts on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, the Clothesline Project has spread world-wide.
