October 15, 2013 — A T-shirt exhibit in Northwest Indiana is bringing attention to gender violence.

Indiana University Northwest is featuring an exhibit called, “The Clothesline Project.”  The display is part of a national campaign intended to air one’s “dirty laundry” about domestic issues and break the silence surrounding violence against women.

Professor of Sociology and Director of Women’s and Gender Studies Dr. Tanice Foltz says the T-shirt colors represent the forms of abuse and whether or not the victim survived.  A white T-shirt means the victim died from the violence and black represents those attacked for political reasons.

The displays runs through October 25th.
