  • The Clothesline Project: Thanks to a group of women from Cape Cod, Mass., we will never look at T-shirts the same way again. They are founders of the Clothesline Project, a small core of women who are finding a way to take the staggering, mind-numbing statistics on violence against women and turn them into a provocative, in-your-face, educational and healing tool. Inspired by the AIDS quilt, they came up with the idea of using shirts hanging on a clothesline. “The concept was simple — let each woman tell her own story, in her own unique way, and hang it out for all to see. It was and is a way of airing society’s dirty laundry.”
