The Clothesline Project Informational Talk

November 29, 2023 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

The first Clothesline Project originated in Hyannis, Massachusetts, in 1990 when a member of the Cape Cod’s Women’s Defense Agenda learned that during the same time, 58,000 soldiers were killed in the Vietnam War, 51,000 U.S. women were killed by the men who claimed to love them. This statistic motivated the women’s group to create a program that would speak up and reveal the issue of violence against women. One of the women, visual artist Rachel Carey-Harper, thought of hanging color-coded t-shirts on a clothesline in a public place to gain recognition of the issue.

Exhibition runs now through December 15, 2023.
