Last Sunday, I attended a late brunch with the one and only Sara Britton of My New Roots. The first time I saw her was actually half an hour before the brunch, when I saw her at one of my favorite Portland shops, asking about a boob print shirt.
This may not seem relevant at this point of the article, but the title might have already given you a hint.
As soon as I got in for brunch, a guest walked up to me to compliment me on my t-shirt (I get that a lot, thanks!), inquire about where I got it (Field Trip) and ask me whether I had seen the SNL skit about it the night before (I had not).
Long story short, feminine and feminist t-shirts are all the rage now and a fantastic conversation starter. Discussions spark with a little anecdote and can then lead to more profound exchanges about the current social and political climate and the uncertain future of female reproductive rights.
I am happy to report that I have now watched the show and decided that, in celebration of International Women's Day tomorrow, I would post this outfit which includes my beloved "The Future is Female" t-shirt.
For those of you who are curious about the meaning of this historic t-shirt, here is a refresher. And don't forget to take action!
Update: The future is non binary!
