Abstract

Presented at International Textile and Apparel Association annual conference

Using symbolic interaction (SI) theory as our foundational framework, we gathered usable data from 66 women who marched in locations throughout the US. We found that the pussyhat artifact remains a symbol of women’s solidarity and empowerment, even while it is increasingly understood as a non-inclusive and controversial symbol by a small but important portion of marchers. SI occurs in the context of pussyhat wearing, with understood meaning and recognition of controversial meanings.
