On Saturday, January 20th, 2018, tens of thousands of people marched through Seattle for the second annual Women’s March. Some criticized last year’s march for mostly representing white women, and not offering a broader message representing a diversity of women’s experiences. KBCS’s Casey Martin was at the march and asked people if this year’s march felt more inclusive than last year’s.
A movement to outfit this weekend’s marchers with pussyhats – knitted pink hats sporting cat ears, is taking local and national yarn stores by storm. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama visits a local eastside yarn store for details.
