Announcement   Women-inspired, women-owned, women-run, and women supporting women:
*5% of all profits will be donated to Women for Women Int'l.*

Why do I make these shirts? It's simple: hope. Hope for progress. Hope that one voice, or many voices united, can make a difference. Hope that love and kindness and bravery and the best of human nature can persist. These aren't made to be slogan t-shirts, or meaningless words. They're meant to be your super-soft armor and the wind at your back as you go out into the world and make positive change:

"Hope makes us dangerous--not just soothed. It doesn't relieve us of duty as much as it reminds us that wind is at our back and unseen reinforcements at our sides. Yes, hope reassures , but it also emboldens. It doesn't just offer us a promise. It offers us a push." -Rev. Sara LaWall

About

Fourth Wave Feminist Apparel: Fierce Vintage Fashion for the Modern Feminist

*Fourth Wave was just ranked in the top 1% of all shops on Etsy for 2017!*

As seen on Women Transcend Podcast www.womentranscend.com

As of now, women are wearing Fourth Wave’s feminist tshirts in all 50 states, 24 countries, and counting. Each of my designs are based on historical vignettes from women's history and pay homage to badass, courageous women who refused to know their place. We believe in honoring the legacy of women who insisted on their right to vote, own property, access education, ride a bicycle, wear pants, etc. by inspiring today's generation of women to speak up, stand up, and shine. Each design incorporates vintage political cartoons, pins, rally fliers, and art to serve as a subtle reminder of significant courage and strength.

I want to empower women by encouraging them to embrace a broad definition of feminism, feel great in their own skin, and raise their voices to effect positive change.

We can do it!

Each shirt or tank top in our line of feminist apparel is screen-printed by hand, by me. My shirts are all fair trade and our inks are water-based. Not only is water-based ink better for the environment, but it will slowly fade over time to maximize the vintage appearance I'm going for.

If you have an idea for a design, or a favorite moment from women's history, please send! I love suggestions.

    I support intersectional feminism and am working to make the world a better place. A shirt is a little thing, but if it makes someone feel bolder, braver, or more connected to others who are trying to build a more equitable world, it's not so little.

Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT FOURTH WAVE'S SHIRTS:
Please note that the women's shirts sold on Fourth Wave are not your standard babydoll. The relaxed fit triblend runs true to size and is a not a juniors style (read: not clingy), ultra soft, ultra light, preshrunk, and is a flattering, feminine fit on pretty much anybody. Choose your normal size. A sizing guide can be found with the photos of each shirt.

Everything you see here is made by hand, by me, with real ink and real screens. I aim for perfection, and I want you to be happy with your shirt. But as a non-Walmart human, every now and then I don't notice that I got a dab of ink on my hand, etc. Please let me know if there's a problem with your shirt. I want you to love it, and I want you to wear it with pride.

You should also know I use waterbased inks. I use them because they're nontoxic (and emit water when I cure them instead of deadly chemicals so I don't expire in my studio). I love the way they look with these retro designs. The white ink is NOT 100 percent opaque on all tshirt colors, and will show a little bit of your tshirt color through the ink (scroll through the photos above to see what I mean). If you're looking for a thick, opaque ink (that will crack and peel as it ages), you want a mass-produced shirt from Walmart.

Last thing! Please note that all orders are made on-demand (e.g., I don't keep a massive stock of shirts with me at all times). This helps me keep costs as low as possible and give you tons of options in size and style.

PRIVACY POLICIES
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of a shirt, for example), if you contact me directly.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
-as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

-Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
-Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
-Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

-Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
-Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
-Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
-Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
