Cecile Richards Joins The 'Pussy Hat' Knitting Party Just In Time For The Women's March

😻 😻 😻

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is not about to be left out of all the “Pussy Hat” knitting fun. 

In an Instagram post on Saturday, Richards took a photo of her hot pink ball of yarn in front of an instructional YouTube video to show her support for the hats ― and her attempt at making her own.

“On my way to the immigration march in Washington this morning,” she wrote in the caption, “and using the train ride to learn how to knit my own pink hat for the Women’s March next Saturday!”

The “Pussyhat Project” was launched over Thanksgiving by screenwriter Krista Suh and architect Jayna Zweiman. The Huffington Post reported earlier this month that the women created the pattern for the cat-eared beanies as they were recovering from the aftershock of Trump’s win. Thousands have gone on to knit the hats as well ― including Richards. 

“I was so inspired by the women producers @thedailyshow who were knitting theirs the other night,” she wrote, “I figured why not try myself!”
