@Laura Brown I can't agree with you. Wearing shirts about guns & violent threats isn't the answer to rape culture. In fact, this stinks more of rape culture than anything. It's about a man's property; not respect or a woman's value.

Maybe it's a Canada/ US difference too. Not many people here actually have a gun to wave around. So here a shirt like that would not be seen as serious versus humour or propaganda.

Is Wearing Vintage Fashions Feminist? (Or, Sign Of The Times 1948)

Is Wearing Vintage Fashions Feminist? (Or, Sign Of The Times 1948) | You Call It Obsession & Obscure; I Call It Research & Important | Scoop.it

At my vintage living blog, Things Your Grandmother Knew, I’ve written about the tendency to romanticize the past, but I recently read two blog posts discussing vintage fashion in terms of “the vintage girl being the new feminist” and thought it was time to discuss the subject from a more feminist angle…
