Supreme Court nominees aren’t usually T-shirt fodder – heck, either are Supreme Court Justices – but Sonia Sotomayor can chalk up another win for breaking the norms.
Her much-debated “wise Latina” remark has become an empowerment slogan for other like-minded ladies, and when folks feel empowered by a catch phrase it’s only a matter of time (very little time, usually) before it makes its way to the ever-flexible canvas of a cotton T-shirt.
The AP covered the pop culture trend today, noting that the appeal of “Wise Latina” T-shirts is partially cultural. Said one interviewee: “In Hispanic culture, there is such a veneration of the older Latina figure. She represents that.”
So if you’re looking for that perfect gift for your own wise Latina, hey – look no further. Even if you don’t want to go political, we gotcha covered.
