This new design sends a message in favour of women’s empowerment as it opts for purple - a colour born of the fusion of blue and red and with which the struggle for gender equality is popularly represented. There’s also a multicolour rainbow thread hidden within the shirt, mirroring the badge’s aesthetic.
The shirts are constructed with 100% recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
