11 Fashion Items That Make A Feminist AF Statement For 2017

With the record-busting Women's March in the rearview mirror, and Women's History Month on the horizon, it's about time to be stocking up on fashion items that make a feminist AF statement. Luckily for us, there are tons of shirts with awesome empowering slogans and art that you're basically going to need to make it through 2017.

Honestly, things are really scary right now, and while I'm not exactly saying fashion is the answer, it still helps more than you'd think. Because in addition to being a nice mood boost and a fun way to express your personal values, there are a lot of great brands out there that are feminist in action as well as aesthetic. In other words, they practice what they preach, whether that means donations to the ACLU, socially conscious principles, giving jobs to women, or a mix of all three and more. Seriously, the fact that you can get a shirt that a) Says "Nasty Woman" on it, b) Has raised over $125,000 for Planned Parenthood, and c) Is legitimately stylish and cute, is very heartening in very disheartening times.

So, ready to get your philanthropically feminist retail therapy on? Keep reading for some of the best empowering fashion items money can buy.
