Praise be. This feminist sweatshirt features a phrase from the Handmaid's Tale, "Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum," which means, "Don't let the bastards grind you down."

Pilling (those annoying fuzzy balls that seem to grow on some fabrics over time) is common, but you can prevent it! Always wash your Fourth Wave sweaters inside out or try some of the other suggestions here: https://on.today.com/2GzIVdc

Please note! These sizes are UNISEX. Etsy labels all unisex sizing as "men's" (because patriarchy.) Generally, you'll want to choose your typical size. But if you're a woman and want a more fitted look, you may want to size down one!

The ultimate in comfort, versatility and style with a slim fit (no boxy sweaters here) and raglan sleeves. This relaxed, butter-soft unisex style is a perfect match for any outfit. Materials: Preshrunk 50% polyester (6.25% recycled), 46% cotton (6.25% organic), 4% rayon.

Fourth Wave feminist apparel makes a great gift for your favorite sister in the resistance, ally, friend, or partner. Or, you know, yourself. https://www.etsy.com/shop/fourthwaveapparel

No toxic chemicals here! We use water-based, eco-friendly inks to screen print our shirts.

5% of all profits are donated to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which earns an incredible 100% rating on Charity Navigator for its effective work in helping students at HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) and predominantly black institutions through leadership, lobbying, job recruiting, and scholarships.

This sweatshirt is so soft and I wish I would have bought it ages ago when I first saw it! The light blue color is a nice shade. Unbelievably soft fabric, bold print logo is eye-catching and looks great. Fast shipping. I'm 5'8" 145lb 34B bra size and I purchased size M, which is slightly baggy on me in a good way. For a fitted look I would have gone with size S. It has long, cozy sleeves I can pull over my hands a bit which I also love (I don't like sweatshirts where the sleeves are short on my arms). Very pleased with my purchase and this seller!

I upsized for extra coziness but I didn’t need to. Super high quality and the softest sweatshirt I own. I love it and get comments from those in the know every time I wear it. 💜

This is by far my new favorite sweatshirt. Not only do I love what it says but I also love how it feels to wear it, both literally and figuratively! Thank you!
