Clothesline Project sheds light on domestic violence

The Clothesline Project, started in 1990 in Cape Cod, Mass., is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt and hanging it on a clothesline. It has spread world-wide and has reached the University of La Verne, where the Iota Delta Sorority recently hung a clothesline in Sneaky Park. The colored shirts represented scenarios such as death from domestic violence, and attacks for political views or sexual orientation. Participants picked a shirt and decorated it with poignant messages and slogans for change. The shirts were hung on clotheslines throughout the park. / photo by Victoria Castaneda
