Feminists Air Dirty Laundry with the Clothesline Project
(March 19, 2012) Armstrong Atlantic State University’s Feminists United is raising awareness about violence against women with the Clothesline Project.
Founded in Cape Cod, Mass., the Clothesline Project gives women a chance to voice their experiences with sexual and domestic violence, thereby airing society’s dirty laundry.
The public is invited to write down a statistic, fact or personal story about sexual assault and domestic violence on an old T-shirt and anonymously submit the shirt, which will then displayed on campus. The purpose is to educate the community about violence against women, as well as provide a space for women to tell their stories, as a means of healing.
Collection boxes will be placed at Lane Library and Gamble Hall from March 19-30, 2012 and at University Hall and the Student Unionfrom April 2-13, 2012. The shirts will be displayed on a clothesline outside the Student Union from April 17-19, 2012.
