The Clothesline Project: Making a Statement Against Abuse

MCC Students at all five campuses participated in the clothesline project: an artistic, visual display of decorated T-shirts speaking out for female victims of abuse.

The Clothesline Project (CLP) started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. With the support of many, it has since spread world-wide.

On Wednesday, April 22 at Noon, MCC-Penn Valley will “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.” For more information, please contact Julianne Jacques at

Here are some of the student artwork from all MCC campuses.
