GIVEAWAY ALERT: In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8 and all the fierce and fabulous women we know and want to know, Run Little Monkey is giving away one of our “F4” tank tops. (Entry details at end of this post)
This shirt is by far the most controversial shirt we’ve ever had. So many women would come up to us at runs and other events and say, “I love this shirt . . . but I’m not a feminist.” Or “Why’d you have to ruin this by having the word feminist?” To us, feminist is not a bad word. If you don’t believe in social, economic, and political equality for women, then it’s OK if you don’t like our Monkey Gear. But we believe women are strong, intelligent, innovative, driven and deserve to have equal footing in every way – pay, power, and opportunities – with men.
So let’s celebrate the feminists, athletes, teachers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, social workers, police, firefighters, military, construction workers, cashiers, barristas, cleaners, entrepreneurs, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, developers, journalists, artists, moms, aunties, grannies, sisters and every other woman who deserves to be recognized and honoured for her role and who’s willing to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality.
