Pussyhats for the Resistance

As we brace ourselves for an unthinkable inau-gag!-guration of an unspeakably inappropriate and unqualified person for [*cough*] U.S. President this Friday, we are also busy preparing ourselves for the “unprecedented” historic Women’s March on Saturday.

One amazing symbol that has arisen for The Resistance is The PUSSY HAT.  To re-appropriate an inappropriate term by a grope-proned PEOTUS and to champion resistance in a piece of wearable art and possibly -hopefully- create a SEA OF PINK at the protest, every protest, in 370 cities and counting around the globe!

2) EndCitizensUnited.org

• Fighting to stem the influence of unrestricted monetary influence in our government!


3)  OFA.us  (Organizing for America)

• Fighting to preserve health care for millions of Americans!

4)  OurRevolution.com , whose platform includes:


 

Too bad about all that other life-responsibility stuff.  All I wanna do is sew and blog.

#Resistance!
