Who run the world? Girls. It’s just a fact, in addition to being a Beyoncé lyric. Showing support for gender equality by way of a few choice feminist accessories and apparel is just one little step you can take each day to tell the world women's rights deserve to be equal to those of men. Feminist gifts for any person on your list is the gift that keeps on giving, too.
Smashing the patriarchy can be embraced by anyone, no matter what their gender identification may be. A tote bag with a message, an empowering T-shirt, or even a functional cell phone case make awesome feminist gifts for the enlightened friends in your life. But, if you’re looking to unite your pals by helping a friend show off their support for girl power (and the subsequent girl power gifts), there are even more options out there to sport.
Help the feminists in your life show off their beliefs with some amazing feminist gifts that they’ll not only love, but they’ll use all of the time. You can give something that is functional and means something. A gift that is stylish and makes a statement is the best kind out there.
