Feministing.com executive director Samhita Mukhopadhyay cuts straight to the point.

My fabulous intern Dior Vargas, sporting her copy of No Excuses and a shirt that aptly sums up her position on Proposition 8.

Three of the Feminists for Choice writers at Seneca Falls, birthplace of the women’s movement.  They’re embracing Power Tool #1, know your history.  Serena Freewomyn’s shirt (center) quotes Emma Goldman, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be a part of your revolution.”

Margaret Sanger had so many things to teach us about leadership, so I love this shirt. And of course, I had to do one wearing the “Well behaved women” quote. Thanks to the Women’s Campaign Forum for my purple “She Should Run” shirt.

Shannon Drury‘s daughter is proud to shout that “feminism runs in my family!”

Blogger Jessica Haney’s shirt is a product of her advising the Gay Straight Alliance at her school.

Jamia Wilson’s shirt says “The Personal is Political.”  It’s from AuH20’s eco-feminist fashion show.

Patti Chang and her 6 year old daughter Kiana sport those great green shirts that say “Feed the Hungry.”

Sabrina Worsham is a pro-choice advocate from Illinois. She and her dog Xena aren’t big fans of homophobia.

Stand up comic Reyna Velarde puts out a word for women’s health.

Amanda Lee Keammerer-Aderibigbe shows her Democratic spirit with her “Barack is my Homeboy” T-shirt.

Gabrielle Korn’s shirt says “Believe It,” because she believes in the power of women to do anything they set their minds to.

Ben Atherton-Zeman: Feminist, actor, and husband is resenting a one-man anti-violence play “Voices of Men.” Clips available at http://www.voicesofmen.org. His shirt gets right to the point.

Filmmaker Donna Deitch’s shirt says, “Maybe surfs down but I’m still up.”

Community organizer Katelyn McDonald opposes the objectification of women’s bodies.

Blogger Transgrad‘s shirt is an oldie, but goodie.

Activist Shelby Knox is very clear about how she makes her electoral decisions.

Connie Watz and Dennis Poplin want to Save Roe. Connie was 8 months pregnant when she wore this shirt.

Megan Milanese of Feminists to the Rescue is another Planned Parenthood supporter. Message shirts, in Megan’s opinion, are an important part of social justice work. She has a collection of Planned Parenthood shirts that she’s gathered over the years. This one is her favorite.

Sammie Moshenberg’s grandson Camilo Sandoval-Moshenberg in a Yale Journal of Law and Feminism shirt. Isn’t he adorable!

Nancy Goldstein says Oy vey!

Morgane Veronique Richardson says, “we can do this!”

Heidi Stine really took this challenge to heart. Look at all her awesome pins!

Jill Miller Zimon’s shirt is from the White House Project, which encourages women to run for office.

Finally, I even wore the shirt in Second Life – that’s how much fun I have been having with this contest.
