VIU displays Safe Campus clothesline in Cowichan

Why not take a moment to view the Safe Campus clothesline at VIU Cowichan this week?

Running until Sept. 26, the display has been set up "in solidarity with academic institutions across the country, with both students and campus administrators working diligently to eliminate incidents of violence against women on campus, and acknowledge the particular vulnerabilities associated with frosh week," according to Kendra Thomas, of community-based victim services at the Cowichan Women Against Violence Society in Duncan.

The Clothesline Project is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a T-shirt. T-shirts hang on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the impact of violence against women.
