Newport Women's T-Shirt
Today, Newport is home to thousands of women making their mark on history in their own way in the City by the Sea. Join them with this classic fit, cotton, crew neck t-shirt. This short sleeve t-shirt is available in both white and navy blue.
Newport women have been making history from before the city’s birth. Aquidneck Island was settled by religious dissident Anne Hutchinson and her followers, including Quaker martyr Mary Dyer. Ann Franklin became the first female printer in the colonies. Ida Lewis gained national fame rescuing citizens during her time as the keeper of the Lime Rock Lighthouse. Alva Vanderbilt Belmont helped lead the American suffrage movement from her summer home on Bellevue Avenue. Newport was also the childhood home of Jackie Kennedy, one of America’s most popular first ladies.
