THE Spice Girls said they are “deeply shocked and appalled” after it emerged workers making their t-shirts for Comic Relief were paid just 35p an hour. T-shirts with the message ‘#IWannaBeASpiceGirl’ on the front and ‘gender justice’ on the back were made at a factory in Bangladesh by employees working 16 hour shifts, it was reported.

Long before there were pink protest hats, or “Notorious RBG” T-shirts celebrating Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, women on both sides of the Atlantic were making fashion statements about feminism. On Dec. 5, 1908, at Royal Albert Hall in London, David Lloyd George gave a speech that went on for more than two hours. As he wound down, it became clear that the Lloyd George — a top official in Britain’s ruling party and later the prime minister — was not going to address one of the most pressing issues of the time: Women’s suffrage.
