Pussy Hat Project …. ‘Mine finally arrived …. the summer version …. “!!


~~April 26, 2017~~ 

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.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Bandera, Pava & Machete …. PR symbols …. “!!


LadyLib

~~March 27, 2017~~ 

“PUERTO RICAN-NESS”

These are very recognizable symbols of the Puerto Rican people.

The ‘pava‘ is the straw hat used by the ‘campesinos‘ while working the sugar cane fields using their ‘machetes‘.

The Puerto Rican flag is the utmost symbol of our Island.

The ‘mono-estrellada‘ … one star only.

The Statue of Liberty is also a very important symbol to the Puerto Rican diaspora.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to New York in search of a better life,

(my parents included in the 1930’s).

All memories etched in my mind, heart and soul!

BREATHE AND PUSH

I found this video yesterday.

As it frequently happens, I found it by chance.

Scrolling through Facebook.

It’s a bit long but it’s worth every minute.

It’s a very badly needed message.

This is a video from New Years Eve 2016.

It applies more and more … as these 50+ days of ‘leadership‘ have gone by.

I think it’s a gem!

Always hang on to hope.

~This is the message I have been craving to hear~

My ears ache after listening to line after negative line in the news, reading the political drama on Facebook, and reading my family’s and friends’ opinions.

These words are weighing me down with heavy, uneasy feelings about the future.

We’ve marched, signed petitions, and called our senators, and the news is not changing. People are tired. I am tired. Life doesn’t seem fair.

We need a pep talk – and I’ve found one.

Valerie Kaur‘s powerful and uplifting look at our world today is so refreshing in this chaotic climate.

As an award-winning filmmaker, civil rights lawyer, media commentator, Sikh activist and interfaith leader, Kaur’s work of storytelling inspires social change. This video from New Year’s Eve has the call for 2017. I needed this passionate and beautiful speech. Hers is a realistic voice asking me a valid question:

What if this is our nation’s great transition?

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, and the basic Sikh belief is represented in the phrase Ik Onkar meaning “One God.”

Sikhism was founded in the Punjab region in India in the 15th century by Guru Nanak Dev. Sikhism broke from Hinduism due, in part, to its rejection of the caste system.

SIKH SYMBOL

It consists of three weapons and a circle: the khanda, two kirpans and the chakkar which is a circle.

It is the military emblem of the Sikhs.

It is also part of the design of the Nishan Sahib. A double edged khanda (sword) is placed at the top of a Nishan Sahib flag as an ornament or finial.

EXTINGUISHED FLAME

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:

The New Yorker’s Next Cover Features Lady Liberty with Her Light Snuffed Out

“It was the symbol of American values.

Now it seems that we are turning off the light.”

The New Yorker has revealed the cover for its upcoming issue which will feature an image of Lady Liberty with her flame extinguished, a powerful illustration that comes amid the continued fallout from Drumpf’s executive order banning refugee resettlement and travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

PLANET EARTH

“I believe in strong women.

I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn’t need to hide behind anyone’s back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don’t play victim, you don’t make yourself look pitiful, you don’t point fingers.

You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”
