Hello lovely supporters of the Feminist Playing Card project! I'm so excited to tell you about these new tote bags that we'll be printing up that feature the suits from the cards. We will be making a limited run of these and taking pre-orders until July 1st, so order yours now to make sure you get one before we run out.
Check out this image of bags in action designed by artist Andrea Rae Georgas.
In other fun news, a few of the cards are featured in the new "Let's Start a Pussy Riot" book that will be released on June 15 & 16th as part of Activism Weekend at Yoko Ono's Meltdown Festival in London. Details here.
We're also trying to get the cards out to more cities, so if you know of a store in your area that would be perfect, let us know! So far the cards are in radical & feminist bookstores like Bluestockings (NYC), In Other Words (PDX), Quimbys (Chicago), Wooden Shoe (Philly), Lucy Parsons Center (Jamaica Plain, MA) and Portland Button Works (PDX). Let's get these decks out into the world!
Show us your decks in action! We love to see photos people take of our decks so be sure to snap a picture next time you're playing a round of poker or solitaire or building a house of cards! Post it to our Facebook page or tag us on instagram using #feministcards.
Hope your summer is off to a great start! And again, thank you so much for supporting this project.
Rolling Stone recently did a "Day in the Life" of Tegan & Sara and the Feminist Playing Cards were featured! Tegan & Sara said "Everyone needs a pack of Feminist Playing Cards! One of our favourite gifts in a long, long time!"
