about this item

Knit, sew, and craft your way to self-empowerment.

Are you a Nasty Woman ready to smash the patriarchy with a needle and thread? Proudly proclaim your feminism with your very own DIY Bleeding Heart T-shirt? Or stage a protest with the rest of the girls, wearing knitted Pussyhats?

Be part of the revolution by reclaiming the "domestic" arts of knitting, sewing, and more—to channel your feminist rage. With pictures, step-by-step instructions, bonus patterns, and tips for crafters of all skill levels from beginner to advanced, Crafting the Resistance is the book for women’s rights activists on a DIY path to self-determination.

Put your homemaking and protesting skills to the test with thirty-five girl-powered, easy-to-make, kickass projects such as:

"Snowflake" knitted wristers

  • "Bleeding Heart" T-shirt
  • Clear vinyl protest tote bag to speed up security screenings
  • The Pussyhat as knitted hats, holiday ornaments, throw pillows, and cat beds
  • “Nasty Nag” zippered pouch
  • Well read bookmarks
  • And More!
  • Take politics into your own hands, literally, and craft your message out into the world. Including an essay and quotes on the history and importance of craftivism, Crafting the Resistance is the ultimate book for political crafters, DIY activists, empowered protestors, and any woman—or man—who is part of the resistance.
