Title: Pink Pussy Hat from Women’s March 2017

Location: Project founded in Los Angeles, for DC march, but ultimately were created all over the world

Context: Referring to Donald Trump’s remarks about sexually assaulting a woman and quote “grabbing her by the pussy”, the Pink Pussy hat project was a movement that was intended to supply hats for the Women’s March in DC. The day after the Trump’s innaguration, women’s marches took place all around the world and millions of people wore pink pussy hats as a visual form of resistance against our current president and his history of sexual misconduct.

Potential Relevance: The collective women’s marches across the country were the largest protest in American history, and also set the tone for the next four years of Americans fighting against the new administration. The pink pussy hat is a symbol of this event, and display the grassroots element of the march, with every individual making their own hats- not buying them from a store.
