THE SUMMER VERSION
I followed the Women’s March on Washington, the day after the inauguration.
Who could miss that ‘sea of pink’?
I wanted to get one of those ‘pussy ears’ hats for a long time.
I finally got one.
It came in the mail yesterday.
I now have my very own version.
Perfect for Florida weather!
What is Pussyhat Project?
The Pussyhat Project launched November 23, 2016 in anticipation and commemoration of the Women’s March on Washington.
Pussyhat Project formed with two aims:
Provide the people of the Women’s March on Washington a means to make a unique collective visual statement (a sea of pink hats) which will help activists be better heard and
Provide people who cannot physically march on the National Mall a way to represent themselves and support women’s rights by creating and gifting pussyhats.
Underlying this project is the idea that in the process of making pussyhats, participants would be connecting with each other and laying the groundwork for future political activism. Pussyhat Project is about creating a platform for people to support women’s rights and each other.
Why is “pussy” in the name Pussyhat?
We love the clever wordplay of “pussyhat” and “pussycat,” buy yes, “pussy” is also a derogatory term for female genitalia. We chose this loaded word for our project because we want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment.
In this day and age, if we have pussies we are assigned the gender of “woman.”
Women, whether transgender or cisgender, are mistreated in this society. In order to get fair treatment, the answer is not to deny our femaleness and femininity, the answer is to demand fair treatment. A woman’s body is her own. We are honoring this truth and standing up for our rights.
