What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than to pick up a new (empowering) statement sweater? This year, a feminist chorus teamed up with luxe sweater brand Lingua Franca to create a collection featuring inspiring, hand-sewn song lyrics that will let you show off your feminist spirit in the most chic—and cozy!—way possible.
And, in case you haven’t yet come across the Resistance Revival Chorus, which is made up of more than 60 women, visit its Instagram page stat to drink in clips of its members belting mood-boosting protest songs. To jog your memory, it was this chorus that joined Kesha onstage during her emotional performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, and the group also recently sang with Carly Simon at Joe’s Pub at The Public in New York City, NBD. And, while not everyone can sing truth-bomb-clad lyrics like these real-life songbirds, all of us can still wear the musical poetry.
The white cashmere sweaters are all adorned with pastel-colored cursive with lyrics like “you don’t own me,” “dream on dreamers,” “I love to be free,” and “took back my humanity.” And the best part? The cozy and luxe purchase is something you’ll feel good about for more than one reason, as $100 of each $380 sweater purchased supports the Resistance Revival Chorus and the Alliance for Quality Education.
