    The Women Behind The Pink Pussy Hats

    Pink Pussy knitted hats are the trendiest accessory being made for the Women's Marches taking place across the country on Saturday. These women are making them, giving them away, and knitting like crazy to have their message be heard. Why is this important to the parenting community? Because, these are your moms and daughters too...

    Mim Hoffman works in wardrobe for TV/Film and Theater. Her message? As a victim of sexual violence herself, she is going to fight the f*$k back.

    Mim has created over 40 hats for friends and women who found her Facebook post and requested one. She uses yarn from recycled saris from Nepal combined with other deconstructed pieces like baby hats and dog blankets. To get a hat from Miriam, you were requested to donate to a human rights organization, otherwise she charges only shipping costs. She says the Trump/Billy Bush tapes horrified her, and this is her way of supporting the women marching on Saturday.

    Luann Abrahams is an educator and writer. Her message? The incoming President of the United States believes his status entitles him to violate women with impunity. She's not going to forget that.

    Luann has been knitting for over 20 years and says it’s her natural instinct to try and express herself with yarn. My mother-in-law, who was a a passionate fighter for equality, peace, and social justice, taught her to knit. She has marched for women's rights in the past but cannot attend so this is her contribution. Pink yarn is hard to come by right now, so she pulled together scraps to come up with her creations.

    Linda Li is a plastic surgeon who loves to knit. Her message? She believes that as women we stand stronger when we are together.

    The process began for her when a friend sent her the pattern from pussyhatproject.com and as she cannot attend the rally, this is her way of contributing. She's made 7 so far and plans to make 3 more before the event, having her friends hand them out when they get there.
