The Pussy hat movement

About a week ago I decided to make myself a pussy hat. Some of you might know them, but for those of you wondering what I’m talking about, here’s the thing: 

It’s a crocheted hat with a rectangular shape, that’ll give the impression of cat ears when you put it on. And it’s very bright pink!

At the moment I feel like the world is being torn apart. Elections have caused uproar, and in my country elections will be held next month. I find the aftermath of the election in the US quite disturbing, and let me be clear! I do not agree with this person’s opinions and what he’s said, and I defy his actions. For people that have followed me for some time, you know that I am a supporter of the LGBT community. This is my continued support for equality, for human rights. I am siding with the sisters and brothers of the Women’s march, for all the reasons you could think of. 

I’m now creating pussy hats on request for people in my city, Groningen. If slowly but surely the city turns pink, I’ll be superhappy. This feels like an amazing good cause to give my free time to. It’s important that we will express our opinions and not be silenced. 

Together, we can create the world we want to live in. 

Love,

-M.
