Every year, the Simmons campus comes together to remember alumna Elizabeth "Betsy" McCandless, and all victims of domestic violence with the Clothesline Project.

The Clothesline Project uses t-shirts of different colors to honor and memorialize victims of relationship violence. The t-shirts are decorated with powerful statements, poetry or design and displayed on a clothesline. This display serves to make public the often private, painful, and socially silenced experiences of domestic violence victims.

This year, the Clothesline Project will be held on Wednesday, October 15.

Gina Capra from the Violence Prevention and Educational Outreach Program took the time to answer our questions about domestic violence, her office and the Clothesline Project.

Today is the National Day of the Girl! Here at Simmons, we are passionate about the advancement of women and girls.

One of the ways we support female empowerment is the Simmons Institute for Leadership and Change. The Institute works to build relationships with community organizations -- like Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Big Sister Association of Greater Boston and Girls LEAP -- that focus on the development of women and girls from all cultural and economic backgrounds. The Institute recently held Science Club for Girls (SCFG) volunteer training, which brought together over 70 mentors - including Simmons College students -- and volunteers who engaged in hand-on science activities for K-12th grade girls.

Another way we get involved is with President Helen Drinan's Huffington Post blogs. President Drinan writes on topics like the incredible Mo'ne Davis, hope for women and girls in a world of violence and advice to her granddaughter.

We are constantly creating new initiatives to support women and girls worldwide. What are some of the ways you like to get involved?

The Simmons campus has gone PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Following President Drinan's powerful op-ed about her recent breast cancer diagnosis, the Boston Globe wrote about our amazing Sharks and their involvement with the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday, October 4th. Over 150 students walked, our largest number in the four years we've participated.

Read the full story: Simmons president's diagnosis inspires group to walk.

This is the fourth year that Simmons has assembled a team to participate in the walk, but about twice as many students signed up as in years past, said Melissa Tanguay, coordinator of health and wellness programs for the college.

"We have people here who are survivors of breast cancer," said Tanguay, 35, a recent Simmons graduate who participated twice as a student. "We have people who are bringing their mothers who have fought breast cancer." Read more.
