lcusa-logoThe Ladies of Charity of St. John’s University let clotheslines tell the story of sexual violence.The “Clothesline Project” at St. John’s University is just one recent example of how the Ladies of Charity can respond to the issue of violence against women. Since 2010  they have been sponsoring a campus  version of the “Clothesline Project”.

The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program 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.

 The Ladies really came through in their efforts to enlighten us at St. Johns this week. The main lawn on campus looked like we had a campus washing day. Each t-shirt had a great message expressed and all from near and far could see. The bake sale and pin sale went well.
