Muskegon, MI – In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), Every Woman’s Place/Webster House Youth Services will host a series of workshops open to the public. The workshops allow participants to decorate t-shirts in memory of victims or in honor of survivors of domestic or sexual abuse.
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.
Each colored shirt represents:
· White For women who have died of violence.
· Yellow or Beige for women who have been battered or assaulted
