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.

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.
