This week, I spotted these cool women trailblazer tees for kids at Piccolina, celebrating all kinds of women through history who are smart, courageous, and creative. I knew I had to share them with you all because you’d want them for your girls.
And your boys.
Now, when it comes to girl shirts featuring our favorite sheroes, typically we see lots of the same incredible people over and over, including the ever popular Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Malala Yousafzai, Frida Kahlo, and Amelia Earhart. And they’re all represented here too, illustrated beautifully.
But what I love about this collection of 13 shirts is that it includes women you may not know as well.
There’s Wang Zhenyi, an early feminist in feudal China; STEM pioneer Ada Lovelace; Mae Jemison, the first African-American astronaut to travel in space with NASA; Juliet Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts of America; and a more contemporary hero, marine biologist Sylvia Earle who was named TIME’s first ever Hero For the Planet in 1998.
I especially like that each tee gives back to worthy organizations like the Malala Fund and Girls Write Now. Whoo!
Our one little criticism: I think the artists who created each illustration are each amazing, but we wish they had the diversity of the range heroes they depicted. There are so many outstanding illustrators of all different races and cultural backgrounds, that we are all hoping there’s a second series of tees coming soon, making use of even more talented artists.
You can find the Trailblazer Tee series featuring great women heroes at Piccolina in sizes 2T -8. Make them in larger sizes please for our tweens!
