I knit a fuschia hat for my oldest Virginia niece to wear at the March on Washington next weekend.
When I heard boys chanting, "Grab her by the pussy!" at a girls' soccer game, I knew I wanted to be involved. I needed to claim the word pussy, even though it makes me uncomfortable. Knitting as part of Pussyhat Project is my way of taking part. Plus I feel like I'm supporting and encouraging my niece.
