You’ve probably seen a tee with this slogan emblazoned on it before, but we’re willing to bet it wasn’t designed by an ’80s feminist and musical icon. Now, though, singer Cyndi Lauper has designed a women’s empowerment T-shirt featuring the words “Girls just want to have fundamental rights,” with proceeds from the tee benefitting Planned Parenthood and other awesome organizations.
Partnering with the fundraising platform Omaze, Lauper had the catchy phrase — a twist on her classic song, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” — printed on her shirts after seeing it on signs at the Women’s March in January.
“As I marched down the streets of New York City in January amongst a beautiful array of people of every sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and nationality, I was blown away to see so many people embracing the message of ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fundamental Rights’ on their handmade signs,” said Lauper in a release.
The tee is priced at $25 — and there’s a sweatshirt version too, for $39 — with net proceeds going to Planned Parenthood and the True Colors Fund, a charity co-founded by Lauper that works to end homelessness among LGBTQ youth.
Plenty of women’s empowerment merch has been released in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, from makeup to T-shirts to tote bags, and in most cases, a portion of proceeds are being donated to organizations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. With funding cuts to Planned Parenthood looming and major legal battles ahead for the ACLU, we think this is a great way to put your money where your values are!
