Hey, it’s kind of tough to hold one of those huge signs up for a few hours. Some enterprising apparel designers are firing up the printers ahead of International Women’s Day this Wednesday, when A Day Without Women strikes are being planned worldwide. While you’re out showing the world what would happen if a good chunk of half the population checked out, you can contribute to the noble cause of sloganeering! You can contribute to some real causes at the same time — a lot of these shirts are being sold to raise money for some increasingly important causes and organizations.
Nasty Woman T-Shirt
The swiftness with which ‘nasty woman’ has been taken over and proudly owned is nothing short of inspiring.
TeeChip – $27
The Future is Female Shirt
This slogan is having a rebirth on Instagram and Tumblr after originally being created in the ’70s for Labyris Books, the legendary New York City women’s bookstore. Then, fast forward to Cara Delevingne sporting a shirt with the slogan in the fall of 2015. Honestly, there couldn’t be a better time to envision a female-led future.
This shirt is part of a package that also includes a small cube of gummy candies and a small bottle of hydrating face mist. It does a bit for the cause, too — $5 of each set sold goes to Planned Parenthood.
Bloom That – $49 plus shipping
Pussy Hat Tank
Don’t feel like wearing the now world famous pussy hat? Just wear this tee and you’re all good. Or double up!
BasiCali/Etsy – $17.44
Nevertheless She Persisted Reebok Tee
— Rachel Lubitz (@rachellubitz) February 10, 2017
In silencing Senator Elizabeth Warren during the Sessions confirmation hearing, Senator Mitch McConnell unintentionally created what might as well be the official slogan for women in 2017, and Reebok was all about it. Unsurprisingly, this shirt is sold out — it was $20, with the money going to Women’s March — an increasingly persistent organization.
