“We should all be feminist” is currently one of the most iconic phrases of global feminism.
Last year, the title of Adichie’s celebrated TED talk and feminist chapbook graced the Christian Dior Paris Fashion Week runway. Under the artistic direction of Maria Chiuri, models strutted the runway with t-shirts stamped with “We Should All Be Feminists” in bold letters. You might recall that Adichie was at the historic event, sharing a front row seat with other A-list celebrities. [read here if you missed it]
Elle.com reports that the T-shirts are now on sale for a limited time. They are going for 710 dollars each. You can buy it at Dior Boutiques and online.
Elle.com also reports that a part of the proceeds from the sales of the T-shirt will be used to support Rihanna’s humanitarian work with the The Clara Lionel Foundation.
Maria Chiuri made history when she became the first woman to head the Christian Dior establishment. Chiuri, who is greatly inspired by Adichie’s writings and ideas on feminism, said in a statement: “Seeing artists such as Rihanna wearing the We Should All Be Feminists T-shirt showed me how important it is for women to advance their fight…My position in a house as influential as Dior, but also my role as a mother, reminds me every day of my responsibilities and the importance of my actions.”
