When it comes to fashion, some of us prefer to use our outfits as part political statement. Sure, we can wear some brand name designer top. Or we can simply use our T-shirts to call out the patriarchy, or racism, or hate in general. What’s even better is that nowadays there are many online shops that cater to these tastes. We can find a T-shirt emblazoned with Frida Kahlo’s likeness or a quote from Angela Davis with relative ease. Personally, I’ve been on a mission to purchase more Latina feminist shirts, so I thought I would share my finds with you all. Let’s make our wardrobes as intersectional as the rest of our feminism, chicas!
Perlata Project and Taller Peralta (the NY-based brick and mortar shop) are both the creation of contemporary artist M. Tony Peralta. The Dominican artist has made some incredible tees (and prints, and other goods) geared toward the Latinx community, including this dope Afro-latina top.
