We’ve got signs and postcards and the absolute best memes, but we also want our dollars to mean something. Here are four witty products from female-owned businesses that support crucial organizations.
1) BAD FIBS: The Activity Book for the Resistance
As Bernie Sanders said, “Despair is absolutely not an option.” These female creators took that sentiment to heart and ran all the way to the snowflake coloring pages with it. Bad Fibs is a cheeky and smart activity book pointing out the lunacy of this administration through the likes of mad-libs, word-finds, hangman, and design-your-own protest sign activity pages. Bad Fibs will encourage you to resist through laughter. Bernie would be so proud. A portion of the proceeds go to the ACLU. $14.97 or 2 for $19.97.
2) “First They Came For Reality” Tote Bag
We have to resist, yes, but hey, we also have to grocery shop. This scarily accurate tote bag by Emily McDowell Studio allows you to show your resistance while plucking avocados for your Postcard Party. It’s canvas, it’s gusseted, it’s yours for $20. Proceeds from this bag go to the ACLU.
3) “Grab ‘Em By the P*ssy” Pencil Set
This pretty, pink pencil set with its subtle gold ink by Sweet Perversion will bring a motivated smile to your face as you work on your resistance to-do list. (Have you called your Congress person today)? With its hand-stamped reminder that sexual assault is encouraged, nay performed, by the POTUS, you can’t help but stay politically inspired with these pencils. Set of 2, $4 or set of 5, $7.50. Proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.
4) “Pussyhat Pussycat” Baseball Tee
A pussycat wearing a pussy hat? I mean, we must own this. This baseball tee, by Squirrel Den Studios, is casually fierce. Perfect for protesting, listening to Crooked Media, or just lounging around and tweeting at 4:00 a.m. Sizes small through 3X, these tees are $28, with a portion of the proceeds going to Women’s Environment & Development Organization (WEDO).
