The Pussyhat Project

The Pussyhat Project was a nationwide effort initiated by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman of Los Angeles to create pink hats to be worn at the march for visual impact. In response to this call, crafters all over the US began making these hats using patterns provided on the project website for use with either a knitting method, crocheting and even sewing with fabrics. The project’s goal was to have one million hats handed out at the Washington March. The hats are made using pink yarns or fabrics and were originally designed to be a positive form of protest for Trump’s inauguration by Krista Suh. Suh, from Los Angeles, wanted a hat for the cooler climate in Washington, D. C. and made herself a hat for the protest, realizing the potential: “we could all wear them, make a unified statement”.[82] One of the project founders, Jayna Zweiman, stated, “I think it’s resonating a lot because we’re really saying that no matter who you are or where you are, you can be politically active.” Suh and Zwieman worked with the owner of a local knitting supply shop called The Little Knittery to come up with the original design. The project launched in November 2016 and quickly became popular on social media with over 100,000 downloads of the pattern to make the hat.[83]

The name refers to the resemblance of the top corners of the hats to cat ears and attempts to reclaim the derogatory term “pussy”, a play on Trump’s widely reported 2005 remarks that women would let him “grab them by the pussy”.[84][85] Many of the hats worn by marchers in Washington, D.C., were created by crafters who were unable to attend and wished them to be worn by those who could, to represent their presence. Those hats optionally contained notes from the crafters to the wearers, expressing support. They were distributed by the crafters themselves, by yarn stores at the points of origin, carried to the event by marchers, and also distributed at the destination.[86] The production of the hats caused a shortage of pink wool knitting yarn.[87] On the day of the march, NPR compared the hats to the “Make America Great Again” hats worn by Trump supporters, in that both represented groups that had at one point been politically marginalized; both sent “simultaneously unifying and antagonistic” messages; and both were simplistic in their conveyances.
