Fourth Wave Feminist Apparel: Put on your power.

*Fourth Wave has ranked in the top 1% of all shops on Etsy since 2017!*

At the end of every month, we donate 5% of all our profits 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.

Back in 2013, when Noelle started Fourth Wave Apparel, the only feminist tees on the market were stiff, beefy t-shirts with the words “Feminist as F*ck.” Clearly, there was a need for something more comfortable and also more inspiring.

Her original designs were all based on vintage posters, pins, and vignettes from women’s rights movements of the past--the legacy of women who insisted on their right to vote, own property, access education, ride a bicycle, wear pants, etc. These designs paid homage to badass, courageous women who refused to know their place.

Today, Fourth Wave has expanded by hiring more amazing women with a variety of skills in everything from marketing and web design to communications. As we've grown, we've also broadened our selection of designs to include political graphics, inspiring quotes, climate change activism, and quotes from today’s feminists and activists that promote intersectionality, change, and equality in the world for all of us.

Each of our designs aim 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 aim to inspire today's generation of women to speak up, stand up, and shine. Each shirt reminds the wearer of their own inherent courage and strength. We hope our tees remind you to "put on your power" as you move throughout your corner of the world.

We can do it! Put on your power, and let's change the world together one step at a time.

If you have an idea for a design, or a favorite moment from women's history (past or present!) please send! We love suggestions.

    Owner, Founder, Creator

    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.

Frequently asked questions

If you'd like me to help you design something, I'm happy to chat! Just send me a convo. If you know what you want, please send me a high-resolution (300 dpi) of the design, sized appropriately, to fourthwaveapparel@gmail.com! 1-2 week turnaround. Price varies depending on how many shirts you order. Size can be up to 10 x 12 inches.

Does Fourth Wave donate to any organizations?

Yes. At the end of every month, we donate 5% of all our profits 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. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” -Rumi

We also support our local Democratic Party of Idaho!

Sizing details

Fourth Wave’s t shirts run very true to size (scroll through the photos above to see real women and men wearing Fourth Wave). The blank apparel industry is filled with cheap shirts, and I’m not interested in selling you any of those. Take a look at our sizing chart (just scroll through the photos above), and order the right size for you. I absolutely love the styles I offer here. They’ve been carefully curated for their softness, fit, quality, and style. I’m also proud to offer sizes XS-4XL on almost every item in my shop. Inclusive sizing matters, and all bodies are beautiful.

Materials

I use high-quality, butter-soft, no-shrink, triple-stitched, true-to-size apparel. I take ethical sourcing and ethical production very seriously. The wholesaler I work with is a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), which upholds rigorous standards for sustainability, sourcing, and ethical work conditions. As well as the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and the Quality Certification Alliance (QCA).

INK
We use eco-friendly ink that does not emit toxic fumes while curing. If you notice a subtle "vinegar" smell on your shirt, rest assured that it is non-toxic and will disappear after you wash. We use this non-toxic spray to cure our ink (so it won't wash out!)

Where can I find Fourth Wave on social media?

Seeing your photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest warms my feminist husk of a heart. Whether you're marching, protesting, or having brunch with your BFF, I love to see women and men! of all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors wearing Fourth Wave feminist apparel. Tag your photo with #FourthWaveApparel find me on Facebook (Fourth Wave Apparel), Instagram (@FourthWaveApparel), and Pinterest (Fourth Wave)!

What happens if I make a mistake with my shipping address? What about lost packages?

If you catch the error before the item ships, all good! (double check this!) If we need to re-ship your item, a $5 reshipment fee will be assessed for first-class domestic shipments. For domestic priority shipments and international shipments, reshipment fee will depend on product weight and shipping fees. No extra fee will be assessed, but please keep in mind that you will be responsible for reshipment fees!

If your package is lost in the mail (we HATE it when this happens) please know that this issue will need to be addressed/a claim will need to be made with the postal service. We provide tracking with each package, but once it has left our hands, it's up to the postal service to deliver it safely (and 99.9% of the time they do!)

Return/Exchange Policy

Please note we do not accept returns or exchanges unless there is a defect in the shirt or print. Please double check our sizing charts and color offerings before purchasing! That said, please reach out if you ever have an issue with your item so I can help you out (instead of trying to communicate through a poor review, which I may not see for days). I want you to be happy with your shirt and wear it with pride!
