One Mom Saved Those Controversial Walmart ‘Woman President’ T-Shirts to Wear to Hillary Clinton’s Nomination.

This week, Hillary Clinton officially became the first woman to be nominated for the office of U.S. president by a major political party. It’s a moment that will go down in American history, and also one that was predicted on a T-shirt Walmart banned back in 1995. The shopping giant pulled a shirt that depicted Dennis the Menace character Margaret saying, “Someday a woman will be president.” A buyer explained that the shirt was “against Walmart’s family values.” After backlash, the shirt was restored to shelves.

Wednesday evening, I was tagged in a tweet from Raya Elias-Pushett that included a picture of herself and her mother wearing the same T-shirts, with Clinton smiling in the foreground. “My mom saved these for 20 years waiting to wear them for this glass-ceiling-shattering moment,” she captioned the image.
