Lavender Menace Crop Top

Regular price $26.00 Sale

In 1970, the president of the National Organisation for Women described lesbians as a "lavender menace" which threatened the feminist movement by potentially enabling them to be labelled as just "man hating lesbians". So women in the Gay Liberation Front crashed their congress, wearing t-shirts they printed emblazoned with "lavender menace", and demanded to be heard. Members agreed and within a year NOW members voted to respect lesbian rights. We have also produced this commemorative merch, with faded vintage style print, using their original design.

• 100% 30/1 combed cotton
• Form fitting
• Made in the USA
• Two colors: black and white
• Bottom hem has an unfinished, raw edge

Proceeds support the work of WCH, and veterans of this action.
Due to this being a form fitting garment, if you prefer a slightly looser feel we recommend purchasing a size or two larger than normal – see the width measurements to get an idea of the fit.
