Here at I Love Mel HQ, we have been working hard, hand screen printing these children's 'FEMINIST' t-shirts. With Feminism being quite a sensitive subject for many, still to this day, we weren't too sure what people would think about our idea. We have known for a long time that these t-shirts are something we wanted to push, so in March 2015, we finally took the plunge. We have been inundated with the support you lovely lot have been showing!
We decided that in order to fully support the cause, we needed to donate some of our profits to a gender equality charity. After a bit of research, The Great Initiative proved to be the perfect charity, with the perfect manifesto. £1 from every t-shirt we sell will go directly to supporting the charities work.
For far too long, children of the world haven't been taught about this important subject. The equality of the sexes is something that should never have even been questioned...unfortunately this has not been the case. Men and women have often been seen in different lights...for doing the exact same job, women have been payed less, expected to be at home, or even not allowed to go to school. 2015 is the year that we NEED to stop this once and for all. The more people understand about gender equality, the better...and what way to start than by teaching the next generation.
With our first set of kids t-shirts sold out, we have just completed our second run. We are in the process of making our adult 'feminist' t-shirts, which will be available very soon.
Below are some images that you have sent us of your children rocking this sassy and informative t-shirt. Please feel free to share your photos with us!
They are priced £12 with £1 going to The Great Initiative.
We thank you for your support! :-)
