Clatsop Community College has been developing a series of classes within Sociology examining the issues surrounding Women's Studies. During the Spring term 2011, the College sponsored an observance of the Clothesline Project.
The Clothesline Project 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.
Each year in March and April campuses across the country participate in an observance of the Clothesline Project. This year the College took part in this profound project. The Women's Studies students organized the event to be held the second week of March, 2011. They were displayed on the 3rd floor of Towler Hall.
