Wear with pride on 8th March
These days, the best place to express your feelings isn’t on social media – it’s on your body (no, not a tattoo, although why not?), it’s on a slogan Tee. If proof were needed, just look at how New York Fashion Week 2017 got political.
Designers had models walk down the runway with t-shirts that read, ‘Femininity with a bite, ‘I have a dream’, ‘Yes we should all be feminists’ and ‘Fuck your wall’. Safe to say, there was more than one little dig at Donald Trump and his controversial policies.
When we joined the Women’s March in London on 21st January, women weren’t just brandishing feminist slogans on placards, they were wearing them too. Messages ranged from ‘In Solidarity’ and ‘That’s Why I March’ to ‘Choose Love’ and ‘We Should All Be Feminists’.
And, the printed t-shirt is so much more than a fashion fad now – though there’s no harm in styling it out a bit. Colourful t-shirts are best worn with flares and wedges for a cool 70s vibe, while a simple black on white slogan t-shirt always works well with smart jeans and a blazer.
For a more comfortable approach, both looks work well with trainers or flat mules.
Obviously, we don’t need an excuse to wear our favourite feminist t-shirts. However, International Women’s Day on 8th March, is as good a time as any to sport yours.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our pick of the most empowering slogan t-shirts from the high street, and even better, for some of those you purchase, donations will be made to charities that support women’s causes, such as the Amplifier Foundation, mothers2mothers and International Women’s Day 2017 partners Catalyst and WAGGGS.
So, to use the International Women’s Day 2017 slogan, #BeBoldForChange and support gender equality with these slogan t-shirts.
Available to pre-order, this bold style supports a good cause: all proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
This image was originally part of a set of three commissioned for the We The People campaign seen throughout the Inauguration and Women’s March, and 100% of the profits from sales will be donated to the Amplifier Foundation.
This brand is full of cheeky slogans.
25% of every t-shirt sale will be donated to the International Women's Day 2017 charity partners Catalyst and WAGGGS on the 8th of March.
Simple yet to the point.
Collaborating with Women's charity mothers2mothers, Selfish Mother has created two empowering designs that each donate £10 to the group per sale. mothers2mothers works to train, employ, and empower local mothers in nine different African countries living with HIV, called Mentor Mothers, as frontline healthcare workers in understaffed health centres and within communities.
This will never go out of style.
Pretty and powerful.
Keeping things sassy.
Pair this tank with a pair of girlfriend jeans.
We know this isn’t a t-shirt but we’ll include it anyway, as it was designed for the #SheInspiresMe project and all profits will be donated to support women survivors of conflict through Women for Women International.
