Pussyhats are back

You will all remember the Women's March on Washington back in January, when everyone war wearing and making pink hats:

This collage of people's projects was put together by Casey over at ravelry.

Now the Austrian charity Caritas is asking to knit these symbols of women's rights and donate them to their pop up shop in Vienna by the end of April. They will be sold and the proceeds will be used to support mothers (and their children) in need. see https://www.caritas-wien.at/pussyhat/

We are already making some, and will make sure they get to Vienna in time, just pop by with your hats at one of the April meetings.
Or, if that is rather your cause, why not make a scientist hat for Earth Day April 22 - A hat to make a point?
