RANI & CO is a clothing brand that is feminist to the core. “Rani” translates to “Queen” in Hindi and ‘Co’ meaning in the company of other queens.
Each piece of feminist fashion is inspired by iconic female leaders such as Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou and Malala Yousafzai. When women wear these feminist slogans they are encouraged to channel the strength and wisdom of the women that inspired it.
This iconic jumper celebrates Maya Angelou’s ‘Still I Rise’ poem. The embroidered slogan “does my sassiness upset you” is the perfect fit for any unapologetically fierce and sassy woman or man!
Feminist fashion aims to encourage women to celebrate their gender, feel more confident in their own skin and perhaps to even encourage us all to educate yourself more on what it means to be a feminist (for more feminist reading keep scrolling).
You’ll look great and feel great as with every clothing purchase, RANI & CO donates 5% of the profits to the Baale Mane charity, an Indian foundation that works giving young girls access to education.
The “Nah” tee is guaranteed to get a few giggles, approving nods and perhaps even spark a few conversation about Rosa Park’s pivotal work as African American civil rights activist. Parks is best known for her refusal to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus, her bravery in standing up for herself and resistance to racial segregation lead to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. This is the perfect versatile t-shirt for the strong-headed lady.
MANNWEAR’s embroidered “Girl Gang” organic cotton tee is another must for any proud feminist. We recommend pairing this tee with your favourite jeans and smile as you go about your day smashing the patriarchy.
