Stitch a womb for a US Congressman
If you're a lady in the US, or someone who thinks that ladies should have just as much freedom as men (an astounding thought to some) then you'll no doubt be aware that some freedoms have been threatened by the Arizona's controversial birth control bill. Craftivism to the rescue.
A group of crafty folks called Government Free VJJ, lead by knitting author and teacher Donna Druchunas (of Sheep to Shawl) with Annie Modesitt and Susan Santos, are rounding up needle wielders to stitch up all manner of wombs, lady parts and the odd woolly uterus to send to their congressman sending the message "Hands off my uterus! Here's one of your own!".
Right: the label GF VJJ suggest you attach to the womb
For those that fancy flinging a fibre-based bit of femininity at them too there are a whole load of lovely patterns over on the Government Free VJJ pattern page for knitting, crochet and sewing, along with where to send them.
And anyone can join in, whether they knit or not, as Donna tells the folks at NY Daily News.
I do love a bit of brilliant craftivism. Best of luck to every needle and hook holding one of them.
