Packed with t-shirts and buttons bearing positive sayings like "Action Not Glamour" and "My Body Is Mine," fem-minded misses can even pony up with Brave Girl Band-Aids ($7.95 for $15 sterile bandages packaged in a reusable/refillable red box), because after a hard day at working the gal-centered underground, a woman might need a little something to cover those scrapes and cuts earned in the trenches.
