Creator of Pussyhat Seen at Women's March Says She Wanted Them 'to Be a Symbol for Everybody'
She and her friends posted the official pattern online where it spread like wild fire.
As millions of women marched around the world in solidarity over the weekend, many were wearing specially designed pink headwear — dubbed Pussyhats — as a sign of unity.
The creator of the Pussyhats, 29-year-old screenwriter Krista Suh, told Inside Edition: “I really feel this is a community. Strangers are now friends all because people are wearing the hats.”
The hats are a cheeky reference to Donald Trump's shocking remarks in the notorious open mic moment in 2005 during an interview with former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush.
Suh and her friends began crafting the hats in an effort to combat Trump’s comments following his Election Day victory.
“I wanted this for the people, to be a symbol for everybody and to make the project accessible,” she said.
They posted the official pattern of the Pussyhat online which allowed others around the world to craft them.
“People are making them and gifted them to the marchers,” she said. “The knitters are sacrificing their time. Everyone is making a sacrifice.”
While her hats were on full display at Women’s Marches around the globe, Ashley Judd rocked one during the movement when it took to the streets of Washington, D.C.
Judd is getting flak for reading a poem called “Nasty Woman,” which was filled with vulgarity and offensive references to Trump's relationship with his daughter Ivanka.
“Sickening remarks,” said one tweet.
“Such a shame @ashleyjudd had to be so filled with blind hate,” said another.
But the author of the poem, 19-year-old Dunkin Donuts employee Nina Donovan, is standing by her work.
“There is no doubt about it, Ivanka is a beautiful, beautiful woman,” she told Inside Edition. “But the way he phrases things sometimes it is inappropriate to talk about your own daughter like he does.”
She said that she didn’t think the Ivanka line she wrote — “I’m not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol” — was going to be a big deal.
"I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal, which is why I put it in there," she said. "[I didn’t] realize this is going to offend her or anyone else."
