Where Are the Women? T-shirts!


UPDATE: Designs for guys now available!

Here’s a new way to support my Where Are the Women? project and stick it to the Hollywood man at the same time. (10% of the purchase price of these shirts goes to me, so let’s get these puppies selling in the millions, eh?) Choose from “I am not a supporting character” or “I am not a plot device,” or on a more positive note, “I am the hero of my own story.”


All three tees have “#WhereAreTheWomen” and “flickfilosopher.com” on the back:


All shirts are available at Zazzle, and you can customize the color and style of the shirt (including kids’ shirts, baby onesies, and other apparel like sweatshirts, tank tops, etc.). The links above go to the US store, but the shirts are available at all national Zazzle sites; use the store links below, or just change the domain extension in the links above to .co.jp, .com.au, etc.

Where Are the Women? was launched by my generous Kickstarter supporters, but the project went way beyond its original parameters. If you’re not interested in T-shirts, other WATW merch is available directly from me. Or you can become a monthly or yearly subscriber of FlickFilospher.com (if you aren’t one already) or make a one-time donation via Paypal.

I’ve got plenty other Zazzle crap available, too. My US store is here. International stores:

    But the shirts make no sense if a man wears them. This is just another example of males being discriminated against. Don’t you know we hunted the mammoth?

  • LaSargenta

    Awwwwww. Do u want a shirt that says ” the Patriarchy hurts men, 2″?


  • Someone on the Kickstarter page requested a WATW shirt suitable for a man to wear, but nothing springs instantly to mind (except maybe just the hashtag like is on the back). I’m open to suggestions…

    Years ago, I saw a cartoon that showed a guy standing in the middle of an enormous crowd, with a panicked expression on his face. He was thinking, “My God! What if I’m not the main character?” I have no idea where to find the cartoon (and there would be rights issues), but that’s the only thing that springs instantly to mind.

    “My girlfriend/wife/partner is (the hero of her own story, not a plot device, not a supporting character)”

    “Women: more than end-of-level prizes”

    The logo as used on the badges and postcards would work as a front print, though I think it would be best with an explanatory subtitle (“examining the representation of women and girls in film” or some such).

  • Bluejay

    “Women are 51% of the world. 2 female Avengers is not enough.”

    “I need a heroine.” (Or, “I need a hero” with a silhouette of a female superhero.)

  • RogerBW

    “Heroine addict” has been done before, but could work.

    “Desperate for stories about women.”

  • Bluejay

    “Heroine addict” has been done before, but could work.

    Ooh, that’s clever. Who did it? Is it copyrighted?

  • Danielm80

    “I’m her supporting character” (with an arrow)?

  • RogerBW

    I don’t know where it came from but it’s been used in various places and I don’t think anyone’s asserting rights over it.

  • Tonio Kruger

    Quick! Somebody IM Bonnie Tyler! She has a video to re-shoot…
