Our feminist women's group has recently purchased a buttonmaker.We plan to wear and sell them and will develope a set of button categories for different public round tables, speaker events amd educational projects that we do.I have been on the web and found some good ones---I'm really hoping to find more funny ones that aren't american.The more that I work on feminist projects, the harder it is for me to laugh." Hey BUSH, stay out of mine!" is funny, but not for us.Any ideas? , any old ones?We will also be doing buttons on the environment, social statements as well.Just throw them my way and let's have a bit of fun!
I saw a couple recently that I thought were funny, if not exactly "new":
Get your rosaries off my ovaries
Get your theology off my biology
oooo! I wish I'd had those to pass out a few weeks ago.thanks
I'll be post-feminist in the post-patriarchy.
Against abortion? Don't have one.
All the cool girls are lesbians.
This is what a feminist looks like.
Stop violence against women.
Your silence will not protect you - Audre Lorde
Girls will do girls.
What part of NO! don't you understand?

"unattended children will be given expresso and a free kitten!" that's from the ephemera site and although not feminist, perfect from an ex small business owners point of view! I'm sure that we can sell a few of those.
I did find "when we mixed with politics, Women got burned at the stake!thanks for the sites
