Women’s March 2018: Voices About Inclusion in the Movement
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.
The knitted pussyhat pattern is here. You can find crochet and sewings patterns for pussyhats on the pussyhat website.
