Pulling inspiration from the color of the feminist movements of the 20th century and the current day movement, Unity In Color, which strives to carry on the feminist movement in an inclusive representation of all women regardless of color, race or religion, TNEMNRODA presents the Unity Sunnies.
"The suffragists used the color yellow to signify their fight for the right to vote. For the suffragist who wore this yellow sash in the early 1900s, the color of the silk was as meaningful as the “Votes for Women” slogan printed on it. In August 1920, the 19th Amendment was one state shy of ratification when it came up for vote in Tennessee. The Suffragists descended on Nashville to lobby for ratification along with Tennessee women of every background, race and social class. Despite their diversity, they were united under a single symbol: the yellow rose.
The early feminist movements were however, not void of exclusivity. Today the term Intersectional Feminism looks at how women of different backgrounds experience oppression. Intersectional Feminism is inclusive of women of color, transgender women, LGBQT women, women with disabilities and women from all ages, religious faiths and backgrounds. To stand behind Women’s Rights, we must acknowledge this and move forward in total inclusivity" -via Unity In Color
