Join us for our inaugural DIY knit-in feminist circle, in support of feminist practice to raise awareness about campus rape issues. We will be joined by BHQFU in a call to take action to end gender-based violence and rape culture at our schools. Pattern is available for download: gorilla balaclavas activated to inform, share and engage community networks of support! We encourage you to go forth, organize your own event – Speak Up! All knitting experience levels welcome. // Alla Horska was a Ukrainian Monumentalist painter and a Shistdesyatnyky, a group of literati, artists and scholars of the 1960s in Ukraine.
