At first glance, the Pussyhat Project is about making a powerful visual statement at the Women’s March on Washington, D.C.  It’s about the hats, and also a lot more. At its core, this project is about creating a form of representation for those who cannot be there, developing connections between people who care about women’s rights, and creating a framework for community and personal agency from the local to the national level.

State of the Arts NYC agrees that this effort is a worthy one because it goes beyond mere protesting but actively engages wormen in conversation about a host of issues and life experiences. It also helps that the show’s host & producer likes to knit. Still a beginner but knitting is relaxing and very comforting. The “creative arts” being celebrated.

Organizers Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman

There is still time to knit a hat for yourself or to donate a hat to a woman going to the march.
