  2. 2. “What is the Clothesline? The Clothesline is a visual display that bears witness to violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her. We started with 31 shirts hung in Hyannis, MA in Fall 1990. Since that time, projects have begun in communities all across the U.S. and in other countries as well.” (Excerpt from pamphlets) The following slides show photos of t-shirts survivors and their friends created at the AUNE Clothesline Event.
