Make a pink cat hat and get involved with the Pussy Hat Project.
If you haven’t heard, there was a Women’s March in Washington on January 21st, 2017 – on Trump’s first day in office.
It was full of women wearing knitted pink pussy cat hats and the Pussy Hat Project provided those marchers with hot pink hats to make a statement and help activists be heard.
It has also been a way for those of us who can’t be there to make our voices heard.
