This festival season, join famous feminists and make an important statement by wearing ActionAid's #MyBodyIsMine t-shirt.
ActionAid’s limited-edition #MyBodyIsMine t-shirts have been supported by famous feminists including Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch, poet Hollie McNish and activist Gina Martin. Here’s why you’ll want to join them in making an important statement this summer.
The t-shirts, created by leading UK-based artists and designers Laura Callaghan, Clio Peppiatt, Patternity, Poppy Chancellor and Ruby Taylor, all carry a design that is a unique interpretation of ActionAid’s #MyBodyIsMine campaign.
The #MyBodyIsMine campaign encourages women and girls around the world to reclaim their rights to their bodies. It challenges the idea that women and girls’ bodies are the property of men, for them to exploit and control.
Alongside Lashana Lynch, Hollie McNight and Gina Martin, the t-shirts have been worn by:
- Black Mirror’s Kiran Sonia Sawar
- Middle Eastern influencer and author Alya Mooro
- Coronation Street actor Katherine Kelly (who’s starring in new Netflix drama Criminal)
- Presenter Lauren Layfield
- Blogger and influencer Natalie Lee.
As the return of Glastonbury kicks off the festival season, why not support the #MyBodyIsMine campaign by getting your hands on a t-shirt?
One hundred percent of the profits will go towards ActionAid’s work in local communities, ending violence against women and girls and helping them reclaim their rights to their bodies.
One in three women worldwide will experience violence in their lifetime, from domestic violence and rape, to acid attacks and female genital mutilation (FGM).
ActionAid UK works with women and girls to ensure their voices are heard and to end violence within communities, including working with girls who have been held back from school due to period poverty.
Poppy Chancellor, the designer behind Poppy’s Papercuts said:
I love creating images of sisterhood and beauty, so when I was approached by ActionAid I jumped at the chance. The difference they are making to communities worldwide is truly inspirational.
That’s why my image of these three women shows their strength, courage and independence. By purchasing the exclusive t-shirts in support of ActionAid UK’s #MyBodyIsMine campaign, everyone can wear their support for women and girls on their sleeve."
