In 1988, before Madonna’s pointy bra,
Tania Ferrier started a business making
feminist underwear for strippers in New York.
It began after an incident at the club when a customer sexually abused a dancer and Tania painted pants for her to wear on stage in a show of retaliation. Tania went on to become a media sensation with the project, Angry Underwear and sold her artwork at an exclusive lingerie store in Manhattan, including to celebrities Lauren Hutton, Reno, Odetta and Naomi Campbell.
Years later, Tania has gone on to write a film script called Angry Underwear which has received development funding from Screen Australia. She used her art and writing as a weapon of redemption to deal with the sexual abuse she herself experienced as a child.
