MY SISTER x Amber Tamblyn #ChoirUp Collection Anthem from MY SISTER on Vimeo. Produced by Acowsay. Music by Yo La Tengo.
MY SISTER has partnered with actor, director, writer and fellow badass feminist, Amber Tamblyn on an empowering collection that speaks out against exploitation and assault against women. These tees, sweatshirts and totes feature some of Amber's most inspired, unapologetic poetry and quotes from her contributions to Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, Op-ed pieces and poetry written specifically for this collection. 25% of proceeds from this limited edition collection will benefit Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS), serving girls and young women who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
“Collaborating on this collection with MY SISTER has been such a joy and inspiration,” says Tamblyn. “We live in an era where words have extreme power and lead directly to action, often times violent or harmful actions against the bodies that identify themselves as women. A shirt collection can't stop that from happening but it can empower those that it has happened to. I can't think of a better way to share my poems and words with the world than with MY SISTER which gives a portion of its proceeds to help survivors of sex trafficking. This collection is a small gesture in the world of sexual assault, harassment and rape but it is, hopefully, also a powerful one.”
The 6-piece contemporary collection features original poetry and statements from Amber to encourage women to #ChoirUp and use their voices to inspire change. Her New York Times op-ed piece spurred a movement of women and Hollywood elite alike speaking up and naming their abusers.
Supported by Amy Schumer, Amy Poehler, Kristen Schaal, Aisha Tyler, America Ferrera and more, 25% of proceeds from this collection will be donated to GEMS (http://www.gems-girls.org/) to help young women and girls who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking exit the industry with support and resources.Shop the collection here.
