Ursula K Leguin T-shirt


Ursula K. Leguin, everybody.

Featuring Leguin’s likeness on the front side along with the title of her speech “We Are Volcanoes,” given in 1986 to a graduating class at a women’s college. The speech is about how women are like volcanoes, and our voices are the eruption, and how we should all be erupting our truths everywhere in order to share human truth, make new mountains, rearrange the geography of language, and a bunch of other amazing stuff.

The entire speech is printed on the back and rotated 90 degrees to resemble sound waves and seismographic readings: voice & volcanoes, get it??

There is also a QR code to the speech online. Worth reading!! Check out this excerpt:

“We are told, in words and not in words, we are told by their deafness, by their stone ears, that our experience, the life experience of women, is not valuable to men - therefore not valuable to society, to humanity. We are valued by men only as an element of their experience, as things experienced; anything we may say, anything we may do, is recognized only if said or done in their service.”
