This is the front of the Strong Athletic Woman Baseball T-shirt made by Strong Athletic. Women are not expected to play sports past high school. If they play in college it's a novelty. After college, women don't have many job choices that include sports. Reminding the world that women belong in athletic and that we are strong and athletic is part of the mission of Strong Athletic. The sleeves are three-quarter length long, ending before the wrists and after the elbows. This shirt is printed on a Bella Canvas Baseball T-shirt. #strongathleticwoman #strongathletic

About the Strong Athletic Woman Baseball T-Shirt

The Story behind the Strong Athletic Woman Baseball T-shirt

The Strong Athletic Woman Baseball T-shirt is a recreation of the Strong Athletic Woman shirt, first created by Kristen Perks in 2013 for Strong Athletic founder Nadia Kean. Nadia Kean played roller derby as Smarty Pants for Texas Rollergirls. While she was on the team she started to find it harder and harder to shake off the irritation she felt any time she or her teammates were referred to as "girls". The infantilization of grown women is not a new thing, yet it is still a prominent problem in most of society. One might not consider it to be a big deal to simply refer to an adult woman as a "girl" every now and then, but when you do so, you are making a statement that women do not deserve the respect that they are due. Women are already asked to take a back seat in most of society, and in sport it is no different, almost worse. Women are not expected to play sport after the age of 18, and if they do, it's a novelty. The majority of women athletes in the world will not make their income off of athletics and when they do tell people that they play a sport, especially one that is considered to be a "male dominated" sport, folks act surprised. Nadia's hope is that women will wear the Strong Athletic Woman baseball t-shirt and in doing so they will help to foster conversations about the importance of calling people what they wish to be called. Ever wonder when to use the word "girl" and the word "woman"? If you're referring to someone under the age of 14, the word girl is appropriate, but after that age, ask the person what they want to be referred to as. If they are older than 18, never refer to them as a girl. Not only is it inaccurate, but it's also insulting. While not all "female presenting" humans want to be referred to as she or her, those who do, will thank you for being part of this long overdue change.
