Meeting #pussyhats on the metro is a thing! Is there a song or a chant we can do together when we see one another in public spaces? πŸ’–πŸ˜» photo by @ebonys_world

We want a new emoji for crafting while angry! This amazing sign is from @badasscrossstitch 😑

We are passing out hats near 3rd and independence! Next to the stage 😻😻😻 #pussyhatproject E D I T : We've run out of hats. There might be marchers passing them out as they arrive at each march!

Are you stressed out you won't get a #pussyhat today or tomorrow? Pussyhat Project is about inclusion and solidarity- we want you and we are thrilled you are here! πŸ’•
If you are considering making your own pussyhat last minute and don't think you have crafty chops, participants have had great ideas about making hats out of felt or paper to make the process faster. Don't sew? Staple! Glue! Safety Pin! There is still some time.
Here's an idea for a backup plan: wear pink in solidarity. Use a scarf, a bandana, visor, t-shirt... almost anything can work! It's even more Pussyhat Project if you also bring something pink to give to another marcher to don in support! You may not be wearing a handmade pussyhat, but you are supporting the thousands of people who are contributing to a sea of pink solidarity.😻

@anisaasakawa, we're putting on those flower shaped glasses and a Pussyhat right along with you today. πŸ’–

Two days-- we are so close to the march! It's a good day to reach out to folks in your life who will be affected by those holding office for the next four years. Email, text, better yet, if you can, pick up the phone! We are in this together. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΏ

😻JANUARY 20, 2017😻-MAKE YOUR OWN PUSSYHAT (and maybe more) FOR YOUR LOCAL MARCH!!!
Are you not in DC? You may be close to one of the 370+ sister marches!
Are you not near a sister-march? Make and wear a pussyhat in solidarity!
Are you in DC?Make another pussyhat for a marcher you are about to meet! Keep going!
You can do it alone, or in a group. If you want to invite people to knit/sew/crochet together, post below. πŸ’•

Earlier this week I noticed my friend Amy knitting this @p_ssyhatproject hat for her friend who's attending the @womensmarch in LA on Saturday. I asked her what her story was for the hat and she told me about her grandmother, Julienne, the woman who taught her to knit 25 years ago.
Julienne spent much of her life fighting for the rights of individuals who were mistakenly institutionalized because of mainstream society's unwillingness to take care of them. Her own sister suffered from a nervous disorder, much like social anxiety, and was placed in an institution with mentally insane and severely mentally deficient children. Her condition rapidly deteriorated as her personal and educational development and care was neglected. Amy's grandmother fought in the courts to ensure that her sister received restitution for what was done to her. Consequently, new regulations were put in place to prevent further unfortunate incidents, as well as to remedy the events that happened in the past to similar individuals. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
Her grandmother is also the first Canadian woman to receive a Veteran's pension and first woman to be awarded a burial plot in the National Veteran Memorial Cemetery as a Veteran and NOT as the wife of a veteran. ✊🏼
Julienne's story gives inspiration and makes a girl realize that we still must stand up and fight for those who cannot do so for themselves in order to see change and keep the policies we fought so hard to attain. Also, our ancestors, with their stories, have taught us how to stand up for ourselves. Now we're putting that training into practice however we can ✊🏼

@rainar00 in her #pussyhat! 😻Have you got questions about how to get a #pussyhat, the march, etc.? Peep our Facebook page ( aptly named "Pussyhat Project" 😝) and check our FAQ at our website!

Five days til the march! πŸ’– Are you a maker who would like to give a hat to a marcher? Leave a comment with your location, and perhaps a marcher in your area will find you and message you about pick up! 😻

We're all about the dogs too. πŸΆπŸ’–πŸ˜˜ photo by @craftyhongsisters

"This old lady, my feisty 83 year old mom just knitted six hats in three days. She can't physically be at the march with us, but when she looks at the crowds on tv she will know she made a difference in her own small way. She lives in a senior community and took to this cause without hesitation, rally her fellow knitters. This woman taught me to always stand up for what I believe in and to never be afraid of fighting back and I am proud to pass that lesson on to my daughters. Thanks Mom-we are marching for you too!" - @krista_tyra1

6 days til the march, and MLK, we hear and read your words. We're doing this! πŸ’ͺπŸ’•

Whoa! 😲 We just hit 10k on Instagram-- that's a lot of knitters, crocheters, and sewers who are standing up for women's rights! When The Pussyhat Project started, we didn't know that it would grow like this--but we couldn't be more honored, humbled, and proud to have so many folks from all walks of life stitching with us! πŸ’– We love you, we love what you've created. Thank you for being part of the #pussyhat movement! Tag a friend in the comments if you think they're a pink-minded too!

@coletteraptosh reppin, #pussyhat style πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– 😍

Only six, sweet more days until the #womensmarchonwashington! Are you ready?!
