A clothes hanger or coat hanger is an object shaped like human shoulders to allow a coat, jacket, sweater, shirt, blouse, or dress to be hung in a manner that prevents wrinkles from forming on the garment. It usually has a lower bar that allows a pair of trousers or a skirt to be hung. Some designs have a clamp that allow trousers, skirts or kilts to be clamped to the hanger.
Clothes hangers can be made of metal, wood, or plastic. The metal hanger is a simple loop of metal wire bent into a flat triangle shape with a hook at the top. The wooden hanger is a flat piece of wood cut into a boomerang-like shape with the edges sanded to prevent damage to the clothing, and a metal hook at the top. Plastic clothes hangers are also shaped like the metal and wooden ones, and are usually smaller as they are often used to hang children's clothes.
As a spanking implementEdit
Clothes hangers are readily available in the house, so they are often used as makeshift implements for domestic spanking (children being spanked by their parents) when other (more elaborate) implements are unavailable, especially in Asian countries. Beatings with clothes hangers are dangerous as they can cause injury like any other hard implement if not used properly. Typically, a few hits with a clothes hanger, applied with a moderate amount of strength, would be sufficient.
The docudrama Mommie Dearest (1981), starring Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford, is notorious for its alleged true depiction of an unhinged Crawford beating her children with a wire hanger.
