'Pussy Hat' Project Aims to Take Over the National Mall


When protesters want to get their point across, some people bring signs, others bring megaphones. But for Saturday's "Women's March on D.C.," thousands of people will be wearing pink 'pussy hats' as a form of protest on the National Mall.  

Aurora Lady is the illustrator of The Pussyhat Project and told KFI's Kris Ankarlo that, "We're doing something peaceful and beautiful. And we're making our voices heard."

Lady and two other women from Los Angeles started the project on Thanksgiving weekend as a way to protest Trump's treatment of women. The project's website allows users who want to protest at the Women's March on Washington to download patterns to knit, sew or crochet their own hats with kitty kat ears. 

The project's goal is 1 million hats so that they can make a 'unique collective visual statement' to help activists be better heard. 

"Everyone remembers the name - whether they want to say that word or not." 

The project's organizers say in a post on their website (www.pussyhatproject.com) that they chose the loaded word for their project because they want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment."
