"THE GLORIA + DOROTHY, "the fifth in our #BOSSLADIES series of handmade totes is now available in the shop!!!!
Our newest tote recognizes Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes, the founders of Ms. Magazine and feminist icons. Together, these women ignited a movement that has motivated generations to fight for equality, fair housing, fair wages, small businesses, and women's liberation, among many other notable causes. Their partnership broke though racial barriers and the message they send in this symbolic image is as important today as it was when originally published given our current political climate. The "pussy hat" displayed on Steinem is a nod to the awaking that is occurring all around the world, which is an extension of the work that these powerful women began decades ago.
All proceeds from this tote will be donated to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, two organizations that continue to fight for equality and the rights of women everywhere.
I know these totes are going to sell out fast, so I will be releasing more each moth since the proceeds will be donated. All orders placed this month will be shipped on March 28. If you have any questions about your order you can contact me here.
I can't thank you all enough for your unwavering support over the years. So many of you were so kind to share this tote on your social media yesterday and I want you to know that it really means so much to me. I started this brand to highlight the #BOSSLADIES that inspire me and along the way I have received so much support from so many incredible women. This cuts to the heart of this idea, women supporting women, and I am forever grateful. Xx
A special thank you to all the women who have made this tote possible. Jackie Schaab for taking my vision and creating this INCREDIBLE graphic. Sabrina Baloun of Sabrina Cole Quinn Photography for the amazing photographs, and Jaimie Baird for her phenomenal support, always- but especially with this project.
