Spanish civil war collection
This is a reprint of a shirt we produced a few years ago celebrating 'Mujeres Libres' (Free Women) which we where inspired to do after reading the Free Women of Spain book.
They where an anarchist women's organization in Spain that aimed to empower working class women. It was founded in 1936 by Lucía Sánchez Saornil, Mercedes Comaposada and Amparo Poch y Gascón and had approximately 30,000 members. The organization was based on the idea of a "double struggle" for women's liberation and social revolution and argued that the two objectives were equally important and should be pursued in parallel. In order to gain mutual support, they created networks of women anarchists. Flying day-care centres were set up in efforts to involve more women in union activities.
This is a black gildan heavy cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with a two colour screen print.
The text is taken from the chorus of the Mujeres Libres anthem
"PuÒo en alto mujeres del mundo
hacia horizontes preÒados de luz
por rutas ardientes
de cara a la luz".
