The Clothesline Project is an organization created in 1990 to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.   More info:  www.clotheslineproject.org.
