Alternatives to Wearing All White
Okay. So you want to participate, but for one reason or another, you can’t wear all white on April 2nd. Maybe you work outside. Maybe you work somewhere with a dress code. Maybe you simply don’t own a stitch of white clothing.
Worry not! We have some fantastic suggestions for how you can still take a stand.
Wear a white ribbon. Pinned to your jacket, your shirt, your bag, or tied in your hair, a ribbon is a great way to make a statement. Ribbons are a conventional way to show support for a cause, and since people will recognize that, they’re sure to ask you what you’re wearing one for.
Wear a white armband. A little bolder, and definitely in the protest vein. Take any scrap of white fabric — a bandana, a scarf, — and tie it around your upper arm. It will definitely get attention and help you start conversations.
Wear a white T-Shirt, and, if possible, get our logo or a pro-woman quote on it. Our facebook community page has some great downloadable iron-on decals, if you’d like a DIY. Several of those are even multi-purpose, with fantastic feminist quotes on them, so it could be your go-to protest shirt!
This one came from Facebook: Paint your fingernails, or a single fingernail, white. White is a highly unusual color for fingernails — we generally only see it on French tips. For that reason, it’s a good but subtler way to get noticed and to show your support.
This also came from Facebook: Wear a yellow rose. Like the color white, yellow roses were also a symbol of the original suffragist movement. Connect yourself to your past and honor the ladies (and their male allies) who got us this far. (Personally, I will probably be doing this in addition to wearing all white — but then, I love roses!).
Those are just a few suggestions — We would love to see more! Let us know if you have any fantastic ideas for how to take a stand on April 2nd.
Will you stand with me?
