“Matriarch” t-shirt designed by Maddy Nye, a Minneapolis-based graphic designer. Patriarchy is over! (if you want it) 100% cotton jersey t-shirt, unisex sizing S-XL, natural white on vintage black, $32

Maddy drew inspiration for her matriarch design from the protest art that hangs on the walls of her home studio – the typeface she used is inspired from the environmental and women’s movements of the 1970’s. With her matriarch design, Maddy intends to ask questions about what’s changed since the 1970’s, what hasn’t changed, and to contribute to a larger paradigm shift in awareness and action. Her design is a nod to the women in our lives who fought earlier battles.
