Telling Stories that Need to be Told

This month, as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Memorial Mall is taking a stand against violence against women by taking part in The Clothesline Project.

If you haven’t heard about the project, it’s an effort to tell women’s stories. Simple laundry on a line can tell a story, and the clothes on display with the project have their own stories to tell. Safe Harbor, an organization that shelters the survivors of domestic abuse, encourages women to take part in the project by telling their stories on t-shirts. With words and artwork, survivors share their stories to bring awareness to domestic violence.

The displays tell stories too, even from a distance. White shirts represent women who died because of violence, and yellow shirts represent women who have survived being battered or assaulted. Each color represents a different crime committed against women, making each Clothesline Project display a rainbow of injustices.

Memorial Mall’s display began earlier this week, and will be available until April 25.
