This is most likely referencing the empowering slogan from the second-wave feminism movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The word “uppity” was used to describe someone inferior that was not staying in their proper place. The women in this movement challenged traditional societal roles and discussed issues involving women’s sexuality, reproductive rights, gender equality and more. The phrase "Uppity Women Unite" embodies the sentiment of women uniting to fight injustices and work towards equal rights.
