Crocheting and politics should go together more often.
A group called Government Free VJJ, started by my friend and knitter extraordinaire Donna Druchunas, is sending a message to the politicians voting against reproductive rights and preventing women from making their own health decisions:
“Hands off my uterus! Here — have a knitted one of your own!”
All the patterns are linked to on their site, and there’s also a spreadsheet you can fill out after sending your item so they can keep track of which Congresspeople still need one.
As Cassie Murdoch wrote on Jezebel:
It might not end the war on women, but at least it will give our beloved representatives something soft to cuddle when they have nightmares about slut-demons and whore-monsters taking over the world with our birth-control riddled godzila-sized vaginas.
