Feminism in the Genes

 LILITH intern Robin Beth Schaer tells us…”I sold T-Shirts as my final political act on campus before graduating from Colgate University this past May. On the front the T-shirt said “feminist” and on the back it read “feminism is the radical concept that women are human.” By graduation weekend I had sold 60 T-shirts, with the final three going to my mother, aunt and grandmother, who proceeded to wear their T-shirts the entire weekend, letting everyone know whose family they were.”
