i love that if you don't know who these women are
then KM STITCHERY offers a short bio of each
in their item description in order to educate you
their shop bio states:
My goal is to spread the word of feminism! To get women
excited about feminism! Women have been majorly left out
of HIStory, mainly because that's what it is, HIS story.
So I wanted to revive Herstory. I think it's important to
recognize, acknowledge and admire women who have fought for
women's rights and who have broken through gender barriers.
And clothing is a great way to spread the message of feminism.
I am sick of seeing male revolutionaries revered and plastered
on t-shirts, but not hearing much about female revolutionaries!
