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.)
