made in the now

This is one of my favourite sources of daily bite-size pieces of inspiration. Every 24 hours, Made in the Now creates a new t-shirt design inspired by interesting current events and global news headlines. Each clever design is only available for 24hrs so you have to snap them up real quick.
I absolutely adore this particular news story and the design created in response to the article.
Shirt #98, 23 October 2011:
From the Times of India: “More than 200 girls whose names mean “unwanted” in Hindi chose new names on Saturday for a fresh start in life. A central Indian district held a renaming ceremony, it hopes it will give the girls new dignity and help fight widespread gender discrimination that gives India a skewed gender ratio, with far more boys than girls.”  
Georgia Perry’s design fused the colours of India with a strong, simple statement for women everywhere.
