Inspired by the Handmaids Tale this design features the iconic words Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum. This is a made-up Latin phrase which was a schoolboy joke written in the Commanders Latin schoolbook. It roughly translates to “don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Outside the world of the book and new TV series on Hulu, the phrase has become a feminist rallying cry for women.
Jezebel is described in the Book of Kings as a queen who was the daughter of the King of Israel. In literature, people sent to Jezebel’s, are usually rebellious women who are offered the choice between Jezebel's and the Colonies.
When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty. Resist: Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum, or in other words, don't let the bastards grind you down. This is the duty of strong female characters everywhere. Long live strong women, clever girls, feminist, and the men and husbands who support them. (Handmaid’s Tale / Equality)
