Whether you’re on the ground in Washington D.C. (or any of the other cities who are hosting Women’s Marches) or not, there are still plenty of ways for you to show your support for equal rights. A great way to incorporate a little more feminism into your daily life is to wear pieces that either support great causes or spread awareness. If that sounds like something you’re into, then you need to find out how to make a pussyhat so you can carry a little bit of awareness with you everywhere you go!

The Pussyhat Project began as a way to unify all of the folks marching on Jan. 21. Women all sporting the same pink hat with pointed, cat-like “ears” was just another way they could demonstrate that they stand together, according to the Pussyhat Project website. But, once the marching is over, that unity should definitely not come to an end. So, if you’re interested in getting in on the action, you can visit the site to find details and patterns for sewing, knitting and crocheting a piece of your own.

You’ll also find instructional videos on the site, so even if you’re just a beginner at creating your own clothing, you should be able to manage. So let the pussyhat-making begin!
