A Crafty Way to Protest

Over the weekend the world witnessed The Women’s March (against Trump); this was possibly the largest demonstration in American history; and it was not just in the USA, there were sister marches in many citiesaround the world.

This is just the beginning! One of the things we as Librarians and Library workers can do is encourage the people we work with in many small ways, one of these things is if we run crafting clubs we can provide patterns for members to make protest crafts. This is important as not everyone is able to march but may still want to show their support!

I recently read Crafting with Feminism by Bonnie Burton, a wonderful book that contains 25 Girl-Piwered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy

From Feminist Badges of Honor to Next Gen Feminist Onesies this book has it all (well not all but a lot of excellent, eye-catching project ideas and patterns) to provide activity ideas for months.

These crafts are perfect for people of all genders whether you march or not

Crafting with Feminism by Bonnie Burton published by Quirk Books is available now!
