I made this hat to represent the Womanism movement. Friends of mine mentioned feeling disconnected to the Feminist movement throughout the 2016 campaigns; wanting to support women’s rights while feeling silenced by the leaders of those movements. I’ve been trying to learn more about Womanism because it speaks to and from the point of view of black women and other women of color.
I recognize I’m a dude. I benefit from patriarchal practices. I want things to be more equal. I know making hats won’t make a better world. But at least people can see (beyond my daily living) that I have their back.
If you would like to know more:
Peace and safety,
