Great Job, Internet!: Feminist Lisa Frank blends bubble hearts, big-eyed dolphins, and Gloria Steinem
Fans of Lisa Frank products enjoy the brand’s Technicolor dolphins, bubble hearts, and rainbow explosions. And, God willing, they also enjoy feminism, as all people should. At least, that’s the hope of the Feminist Lisa Frank Tumblr, which claims it’s “dismantling the patriarchy one rainbow kitten at a time.” Blending Frank’s images with quotes from famous feminists like Anita Sarkeesian, Gloria Steinem, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Tumblr makes the personal both pretty and political, slapping positive manifestos on pictures of big-eyed kitties. While the mashup of Frank’s poppy images and forceful feminist statements might not make sense on the surface of things, there’s something to be said for a bikini-clad, big-eyed girl riding a surfboard with her Chihuahua while floating next to a dolphin, all while adamantly asserting her right to equality.
