This vintage feminist shirt pays tribute to the Campfire Girls, originally a sister organization to the Boy Scouts of America. The campfire girls' mottos were self-sufficiency and the idea that girls are powerful and can learn and do anything. The offical slogan was "Help the girls who help themselves." © Design by Fourth Wave Feminist Apparel

ABOUT FOURTH WAVE'S SHIRTS:
Please note that the women's shirts sold on Fourth Wave are not your standard babydoll. The relaxed fit triblend runs true to size and is a not a juniors style (read: not clingy), ultra soft, ultra light, preshrunk, and is a flattering, feminine fit on pretty much anybody. Choose your normal size. A sizing guide can be found with the photos of each shirt.
Everything you see here is made by hand, by me, with real ink and real screens. I aim for perfection, and I want you to be happy with your shirt. But as a non-Walmart human, every now and then I don't notice that I got a dab of ink on my hand, etc. Please let me know if there's a problem with your shirt. I want you to love it, and I want you to wear it with pride.
You should also know I use waterbased inks. I use them because they're nontoxic (and emit water when I cure them instead of deadly chemicals so I don't expire in my studio). I love the way they look with these retro designs. The white ink is NOT 100 percent opaque on all tshirt colors, and will show a little bit of your tshirt color through the ink (scroll through the photos above to see what I mean). If you're looking for a thick, opaque ink (that will crack and peel as it ages), you want a mass-produced shirt from Walmart.
Last thing! Please note that all orders are made on-demand (e.g., I don't keep a massive stock of shirts with me at all times). This helps me keep costs as low as possible and give you tons of options in size and style.
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of a shirt, for example), if you contact me directly.

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
-Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
-Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Fourth Wave’s t shirts run very true to size (scroll through the photos above to see real women and men wearing Fourth Wave). The blank apparel industry is filled with cheap babydoll shirts, and I’m not interested in selling you any of those. Take a look at our sizing chart (just scroll through the photos above), and order the right size for you. I absolutely love the styles I offer here. They’ve been carefully curated for their softness, fit, quality, and style. I’m also proud to offer sizes XS-4XL on almost every item in my shop. Inclusive sizing matters, and all bodies are beautiful.
I use high-quality, butter-soft, no-shrink, triple-stitched, true-to-size apparel. I take ethical sourcing and ethical production very seriously. The wholesaler I work with is a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), which upholds rigorous standards for sustainability, sourcing, and ethical work conditions. As well as the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and the Quality Certification Alliance (QCA).
I use eco-friendly, water-based ink that does not emit toxic fumes while curing. It’s so safe you can eat it (YUM). The ink feels soft when dry and literally becomes part of the t-shirt.
Please also note: White water-based ink is NOT 100% opaque on all t-shirt colors. This vintage look is 90-95% opaque--and beautiful.
Everything you see here is made by hand, by me, with real ink and real screens. I personally believe in the messages I create, and you’d better believe I’m wearing my own shirts out into the world as I work to make it a better place for all of us. Keep in mind that all orders are made on-demand (I don't keep a massive stock of shirts in all designs/colors/sizes because that would be WHOA). Creating your shirt on demand helps me keep costs as low as possible and gives you lots of options in size, color, design, and style.
Seeing your photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest warms my feminist husk of a heart. Whether you're marching, protesting, or having brunch with your BFF, I love to see women and men! of all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors wearing Fourth Wave feminist apparel. Tag your photo with #FourthWaveApparel find me on Facebook (Fourth Wave Apparel), Instagram (@FourthWaveApparel), and Pinterest (Fourth Wave)!
Etsy calculates shipping automatically, based on item weight and size. However, if you are ordering a large number of t-shirts, there will often be a shipping overage, which I'll refund to you as soon as your shirts ship!
If you don't see the style/design combo you want, never fear! I make all of my products in house, so the sky’s the limit. I don’t list all design options for every single shirt, so you don't have to scroll for 8 years, but if you love a particular style of shirt but want a different design, just let me know in your order notes.
If you’re interested in placing an order of 20+ shirts, please reach out! I’m happy to answer all your questions and can provide quick turnaround and a fantastic, quality shirt for your event or party.
I want this to be your new favorite t shirt. That means, if you’re not happy with it, please reach out before leaving me a nastygram in your review. I’m not perfect--despite my best efforts, a little blob of ink escapes without my notice. But I’m always happy to make it right. On a similar note, if you LOVE your shirt, please do leave me a review--it means the world to me to know that you are wearing your feminist shirt with pride while you make positive change in the world.
