We should be celebrating women all year long, but it’s Women’s History Month – a perfect time to shine a spotlight on some incredible women. Here are some amazing goods designed by women that also feature the likenesses of female luminaries, both past and present.
Tees and sweatshirts from Piccolina ($28-$56)
Piccolina is a new mission-driven lifestyle brand that aims to inspire today’s girls to become tomorrow’s history-makers. The tees and sweatshirts are beautifully-designed and feature images from women like Mae Jemison, Jane Goodall, Rosa Parks, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And good news – they have grownup sizes, too!

Each of these notepads from this Rochester, NY museum features a famous woman and a powerful quote. Women include Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Shirley Chisholm, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The woman-designed notepads are created by The Card Bureau, a DC-based design company that strives to elevate female figures through their products.
Kristy Rice Pillars Collection Kamala Harris “There’s Glass Everywhere” onesies, mugs, bibs, tees, and more ($18 and up)
The Pillars Collection began as a way to celebrate Rice’s daughter’s first birthday and let her daughter know that she could grow up to be anything she wanted. On election night, she created a Kamala sketch and posted it on Facebook. Friends went wild over the image and started requesting T-shirts, mugs, etc. The rest is history!
