It really stinks when tees stamped with empowering messages for women are made by women who are most definitely not experiencing any of that empowerment in a country like Bangladesh. At the same time, American garment workers often need further rights + increased pay as well. One of my hopes when buying American made garments is that designers keep a closer eye on their factories (especially when garments like these are both designed + made in Los Angeles) + that the garment workers' children are receiving benefits that come from living in this country...like clean water + education. There is clearly more work to be done + more justice to be won!
This summer, I bought this tee (it came along in my backpack too). I'm not much of one for shouting at people with the words on my clothes, but I thought these were worthy words. :) I've worn it a ton + love it. So...if there ever comes a time when you need a new tee ...Dazey LA can be found on our ethical brands list. :)
