No Excuses Power Tool #6 is “Wear the Shirt.” It’s a metaphor for sharing your convictions with others. Whether it’s a slogan, a DIY ensemble, or your Feminist Majority “this is what a feminist looks like” shirt, it’s important that we wear our shirts proudly. That’s why I’m hosting a Wear the Shirt photo contest.

Send me a photo of you in your favorite message shirt, and I’ll include you in the slide show on my homepage. One lucky winner will receive an autographed set of my four books, including No Excuses.

I would love for you to participate in this opportunity to socialize and share your favorite shirts! There are three ways to participate:

1. Take a picture of yourself in your favorite shirt and send it to me in an email.
2. Post the picture on your blog and let your readers know about this contest! E-mail me and I’ll link to the post and also put it on my Twitter and Facebook page.
3. Tweet your shirt and about the wear the shirt campaign, linking to @GloriaFeldt.

    I think the metaphor can be useful but I also think that it is important to recognize that the ability to wear the t-shirt/convictions is a privileged position. For many people it costs too much to wear the shirt.

  4. Gloria Feldt says:

    Feeling vulnerable saps one’s power. Still, everyone can “wear the shirt” about something, however small. The fastest route to self-esteem, a friend has often said to me, is to stand up for what you believe.

    I deliberately chose the Sojourner Truth quote to start my book because theoretically she came from a position of less than no power as a slave, but she became a great orator and leader in both the abolition and women’s rights movements.
