The Clothesline Project at Tufts

26 04 2009

I’m a bit late on posting this, but the Clothesline Project happened at Tufts earlier this month, from April 14th to April 16th.  A lot of Tufts students decorated t-shirts, and the display was incredibly moving and powerful.   People walking by would either stop and read the t-shirts and talk about it to whoever they were with, or they would just take one glance and realize what the t-shirts said and just walk straight through without another glance.  Although not too many people decorated t-shirts, a lot of people stopped by and asked what we were doing and what this was all about, so it definitely sparked a lot of conversation.  Here are some of the t-shirts Tufts students made:

"Time will Pass, Seasons Will Change, And I have grown, But what you did to me that night will always stay the same."

"One in four college women is a victim of rape or attempted rape."

"I was raped at Tufts and they did NOTHING.  Speak out.  Change CAN happen."

"Dear Rapist: 'I'm sorry you think I raped you' is bullshit.  We both know that that's not the case.  You raped me.  It just sucks that people believed you not me."
