Iron Jawed Wrist Bands ---- YEAH!!!
As some of you may know there is a little march coming up on April 25th in DC. I am speaking of the March for Women's Lives.
The purpose of this march is to demonstrate support for reproductive health and freedom for ALL women. Millions of women, particularly low income women, rural women, women of color and teens face multiple barriers to receiving reproductive health care services. We want all women to have access to safe affordable reproductive health care. This includes birth-control, pre-natal care, and safe abortions.
For the march, I will be knitting millions of purple and gold (lemon yellow) wrist bands. These are the colors of the march and also the colors that were on the flags in the 'Iron Jawed Angels' HBO original movie on Alice Paul.
How cool will it be to see a crowd of women raising their fists clad with a purple and gold feminist wrist bands? -FUUCK YEAH!!
If you want to join me in my efforts, you can follow the pattern in the Stitch 'n Bitch book, just change the colors. or you can email me (airingoutthevulva at hotmail dot com). I can certainly use knitting help to make a million.
To get the bands to the march, you can either bring them with you, send them with a friend or email me about shipping.
I'm using CHEAP yarn for this project.
It is a great way to contribute to the cause if you cannot attend the March.
