The Clothesline Project
The Clothesline Project is a program that addresses 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.
March 31st through April 4th. Learn more at http://www.clotheslineproject.org/.
Women in Prison
Why didn't she just leave? Voices Set Free invites you to participate in a conversation about the profound personal and societal problems of domestic violence. We will explore why battered women stay in abusive relationships despite severe risks to their lives and children's lives. We will hear from a formerly incarcerated woman convicted of killing her batterer, rendered invisible by the system, as well as another survivor who managed to escape and endured a lengthy criminal trial process in which the system failed her.
1 in 14 people in prison are women. Many women sentenced are single moms and battered women. Oregon law does NOT recognize "Battered Women's Syndrome" as a defense for women who defend themselves against their abuser.
