Clothes for girls who like dinosaurs

#1

Love this Kickstarter project to commercialise the making of clothes for girls who like a broader mix of stuff than just unicorns and sparkles.

Never mind the kids - I want an orbital shells skirt! (I already have the dinosaur mini-skirt of awesome, which is the one piece of clothing I own guaranteed to get comments, and not because it's a mini-skirt).

One day I’ll get round to making myself a fitted sundress, and I’d love to do it with some scientific fabric! I like the orbital shells, not least because from a distance it just looks like a geometric design, so wearing it would be sort of like being a stealth geek.

Further news on gendered clothing - an 8 year old girl was cross that there were dinosaur shoes for boys but not girls. She writes a letter to Clarks, her mum Tweets it, and women scientists (and now all manner of women) send pictures of their shoes.

I am going to find some way to show this to my class next week. I love things like this that can shows children they DO have the power to change the world (did a whole unit of work on Martha Payne of school meals blog fame a couple of years ago!)

“Because I Moved 5 Shirts”… Portrait Of An Unexpected Twitter Storm
A women did a small act of rebellion against the twee girls clothes by moving some NASA te-shirts from the boys section to the girls section in her local Target. The reaction online was astounding. If anyone ever tells you that clothes/fashion aren’t important, direct them to this article so they can see how angry people got over something so seemingly trivial.
