Leave it to a five-year-old to call out pink princess girl clothing stereotypes brilliantly. The Washington Post reported on Alice’s letter to The Gap and we hope she wins:
My name is Alice Jacob and I am almost 5½ years old. I like cool shirts like Superman and Batman shirts and race car shirts, too. All your girl shirts are pink and princesses and stuff like that. The boys’ shirts are really cool. They have Superman, Batman, rock-and-roll and sports. What about girls who like those things like me, and my friend Olivia?
Can you make some cool girls’ shirts please? Or, can you make a ‘no boys or girls’ section — only a kids’ section?
Yeah Gap, what about it?
