I don't know if ihollaback is supposed to be a nonprofit but 50% is an awful ratio if so. The is no specific percentage set for a non-profit but industry standard is 10-30% going to admin.
Girl Scouts of America is a non-profit and gives almost 90% back into their programs. is technically a charity and they give 98% back into their programs.
I get hollaback is not on this scale but still. A lot of people in Non-profits aren't doing it for the money.

Also you might want to check this article out
it says what those women make is below the poverty line and those shirts cost $14 to make.

Also, the Fawcett Society (who gets the profit from the shirts) is a UK company focused on bettering women's rights in the UK. Not Mauritius.
"Uh, that'll be $14 for the tickets for the babies."
"Oh no, no, no, they're just gonna cry. Just gonna come in here and weep."
