To protest the attacks on women’s health by the Republician Congress, a new knitting group was born across social media. And boy are they already making an impact. Might as well get them with a little craftivism right? “If they have their own, they can leave ours alone” is just what the ladies of Governement Free VJJ are saying.
Next question: how do you make this happen and jump on the knitting uterus bandwagon? Head over to Government Free VJJ who has caused quite the buzz to have ladies knit and crochet uteruses – cervixes and vulvas included - and mail them to any of their representatives. I know, I can’t believe I am even typing this or reading it. You learn something new every day!
Get more info after the jump!
So, if you’ve got some time, pick out a pattern (I personally would go for the Happy Uterus in Hot Pink), fill out this form and mail the finished product to your favorite member of Congress. Or the one who you think needs a little something soft and cuddly with the simple message,”Hands off my uterus! Here’s one of your own!” Go ahead, support women and knit a uterus – especially if you’re tired of the Government telling you whether or not you should take birth control. Might as well donate to charity in some way!
Dear Men in Congress: If we knit you a uterus, will you stay out of ours?
Will you be knitting a uterus today?
