new online shop at Threadless.com with All Profits going to charity
07/23/16 The backstory: As a non-US citizen (or, a soon-to-be deported alien immigrant if Trump wins) I'm barred from donating to Hills. So I recreated her most badass Blackberry texting portrait and launched a little pop-up tee shop. I figured that if people wear one then I'll at least be 'contributing' by spreading a positive message. As I went through this exercise I realised that there are so many amazing women out there being total badasses... I just had to create tees of them too.
The aim: Keep the prices as low as possible and donate all profits from sales to this badass non-profit: Black Girls CODE
The Badasses so far...
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Former FLOTUS, Secretary of State, Blackberry ninja, pissed-off wife and busy mother... Soon to be the first ever female POTUS. Hillary is the epitome of a badass.
Hands down the hottest, funniest, most badass-est FLOTUS ever. #FACT. Those arms, that brain, her smile and her grace – she's just awesome. Michelle is a total badass.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (aka, Notorious RBG)
Supreme bullshit slayer, Trump hater, womens' rights defender, civil rights upholder, and a national treasure. RBG is truly a notorious badass.
Goddess (ditto her sister, Venus), tennis legend, slayer of haters, an inspiration to girls and women everywhere, and a total babe. Serena is a world champion badass.
Fearless fencer, light saber wielder, and record breaker as the first Muslim woman to wear a hijab in the United States Olympic Team. Ibtihaj is an inspirational badass.
the badasses coming up...
American political activist, academic scholar, author, and still a rad badass
American feminist, journalist, political activist and still a rad badass
Physicist, astronaut and the first American woman in space in 1983 (b. 1951 - d. 2012)
