During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt has been decorated to represent a particular woman\'s experience, by the survivor herself or someone who cares about her. WHITE for women who have died in violence. YELLOW or BEIGE for women who have been battered or assaulted. RED, PINK, or ORANGE for women who have been raped or sexually assaulted. BLUE or GREEN for women survivors of incest or child sexual abuse. PURPLE or LAVENDER for women who have been attacked because of their sexual orientation.
