Look good AND give back.
It seems like feminist merchandise has literally been popping up everywhere. And ever since Dior came out with their “Everyone Should Be a Feminist” tee based on the quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, feminism is officially “in.”
But are all these companies just profiting off of our feminist cause and taking advantage of us? That’s what a lot of folks are concerned about, including actress Rowan Blanchard. She recently tweeted out her concerns,
“Really hope all the proceeds from these “feminist” tee shirts coming outta fashion week are going to a women’s rights organization lol”
And then she called out the Dior tee, writing,
And clearly, a lot of people agree with her because her first tweet got over 7.8K favorites!
So where can you get feminist merch that actually benefits the cause? Wonder no more, because we got you covered. Check out a few of our faves below.
The best part of Feminist Apparel is you can shop by cause and 40% of the profits go to either the African American Policy Forum, Genna Davis Institute on Gender, or Hollaback.
You probably recognize Otherwild’s classic “The Future is Female Tee” (25% of the proceeds go to Planned Parenthood) but they also make an awesome “Gender is a Drag” tee, for which 25% of the profits go to The National Center for Transgender Equality.
Femininitees was started by two badass women and feature cute low-key feminist tees, for which 15% of the profits go straight to the National Organization for Women.
Get you classic “Nasty Woman” tee here! By donating 50% of the proceeds to Planned Parenthood, they’ve already raised over $125,000 for the organization.
