The Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each
shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her.

Lexi Millard

Great news from WGS minor, Lexi Millard: I received one of the campus’s SMART Summer Fellowships through the research office. My research ended up leading me toward doing research on depictions of female criminality and how that gender act and its depictions in literature simultaneously subverted and upheld the gender ideology that began appearing at the time. Congratulations, Lexi!
