Pussyhat

The Pussyhat Project was launched in November of 2016 as a means to create a unified visual message on International Women’s Day in light of the recent election of President Donald Trump.

The project also aimed to create a broader network of activism across the globe, ensuring that supporting women’s rights was accessible to all. The success of the movement has seen Pussyhat’s entering museum collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Museum of American History and the Michigan State University Museum.

The project was founded by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, a screen writer and architect respectively, and grew to include Kat Coyle, who designed the knitting pattern for the Pussyhat and art-worker, Aurora Lady.
