Strong, accomplished women, please

I have a real thing for graphic t-shirts, and my closet would be full of nothing but them if I didn’t value diversity in my clothes as well. However, while I think the Little Miss series of shirts by The Perfect White Shirt is cute and that the illustrations rock, I take issue with it because it reduces women who are working hard to make their way through school and establish themselves in their careers to, well, little misses. A lawyer, doctor, architect, programmer, writer, or dentist, among other professions, and even someone who has either completed or is currently pursuing her education, is not a mere “little miss.” She’s a woman, and that is that. No need to add cutesy nicknames to it.
