Betsy's Friends

The Clothesline Project

The Betsy’s Friends Peer Education Program is made up of a passionate and diverse group of students who work to end gender-based violence in the Simmons community.  The program focuses on prevention, education and awareness around important topics such as domestic/dating violence, sexual assault, coercion and stalking. 

Some of Betsy's Friends' annual programs include The Clothesline Project and Take Back the Night- a collaborative event with the SWAG (Sexuality, Women and Gender) student group, and is hosted at Simmons University for the entire Colleges of the Fenway consortium.

Betsy’s Friends is advised by, and works in collaboration with the Simmons University Violence Prevention and Educational Outreach Program.
