The world has gone topsy-turvy. It's like we're living in Stranger Things' The Upside Down and all of the monsters we never truly believed to exist are creeping out from under our beds and taking human form. Embroidered t-shirts with feminist sayings are everything we need and more right now, because standing up for your beliefs is of the utmost importance in today's uncertain world.
Of course it's always important to stand up for what you believe in — especially if you're fighting against injustice and/or discrimination — but, since Nov. 8 2016 it's been even more crucial that we all make our voices heard. As a Brit, I utilized the power of my voice (regarding a different political situation) slightly sooner than my sisters across the ocean. In the early hours of June 24 2016, I realized just how significant our voices can be. After voting in the EU Referendum and crossing my fingers that we would remain a part of the European Union, I was flabbergasted at the results that stated the opposite of what I wanted for the future of my country — I'm sure many citizens of the USA are now well acquainted with this feeling of powerlessness.
Now is not the time to sit back and hope for the best. Now is the time to wear our hearts on our sleeves and let our voices be heard. These awesome embroidered t-shirts with feminist messages will help you on your journey, wherever it takes you.
