Still Packing but Fired Up
Hello all, I am still recovering from a luxurious vacation in Mexico and at the same time trying to be ready to hop on the bus tomorrow WAY early for the Women’s March on Washington. It will be a three day trip, 18 hours each way and something like 9 hours of rally and march on the 21st. Here are the three signs I have so far, still planning to make arm bands too. Then food and clothes and a few other details!
I’ll be on the Winona LaDuke bus. Love the “Resist In Peace” sign from Stacy Karzen. Made my own womb sign, inspired by one from Iowa women. And of course I’ll have my pussy hat thanks to Kiarina and Kristin… Stay tuned!
Ready to March in Washington?
On the morning of January 20 I will board the bus for the 18-hour ride to Washington DC for the Women’s March on Washington. Please feel free to check in here, and/or follow me on Twitter @MinnBonnie or @uswomenconnect. And, make sure I have your Twitter handle and blog name so I can find what you are doing about Trump’s many threats to women’s rights.
I have a week to go and still thinking of what to wear to show my outrage and determination to make a difference. I have my official “Women’s March” long sleeved T and have ordered a sash – or think I have (hard to keep track of all the products). I think/hope somebody has knitted me a pussy hat. I have also ordered – but who knows if they will arrive in time? – several posters with the beautiful raised fist inside women’s symbol. But I might also make a sign copied from the Iowa women, that has a big beautiful pink uterus and the words: Get Your Own/ Then Tell It What To Do. And, I am thinking if I can make (muslin and markers?) shoulder bands, one with the crescent and star (Muslim), one with Star of David (Jew), one rainbow (LGBTQ), and another woman symbol – and maybe a Stars N Stripes. (Got two shoulders after all.)
