On Aug. 26, 2014, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund announced that Scarlett Johansson had designed a limited edition t-shirt for the organization. The t-shirt is available for sale in the Planned Parenthood Action store for $25, and is also being used in a fundraiser in which donors are given a shirt for their donation of $35 or more.
The shirt reads “Hey Politicians! The 1950s called…” on the front, and on the back says: “They want their sexism back!”
In an email announcing the shirt on Aug. 26, 2014, Johansson stated,
- "When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court's decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade. Like many of my friends, I was appalled by the thought of men taking away women's ability to make our own personal health care decisions. That's when I knew I couldn't sit on the sidelines and why I'm proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women are Watching campaign to ensure that young women know the high stakes for women's health and rights this November. Women are watching, and we will fight for candidates who will ensure that birth control is affordable and who will protect access to safe and legal abortion,” she added. “Women will be the key to the elections this November and it's more important than ever that young women register to vote and vote for the candidate that will stand up and fight for them."
