Is your dad devoted to women's rights and wants to show it? You don't have to get the same-old same-old gifts for Father's Day 2018; he probably has enough boring ties and socks to last him until the Apocalypse. Instead, why not get your feminist dad something that shows off his commitment to gender equality, subtly or overtly? Once you're too old to give him pasta-and-glue handmade cards, it's time to give him a serious gift that commemorates his beliefs (or tries to show him yours). Well, as serious as a Wonder Woman bow tie can actually get.
Feminist gifts aren't just about slogans or iconic imagery, though that's certainly a part of it. Presents can have feminist credentials in many ways, whether they fund women's organizations, are made by groundbreaking female artisans, contribute to equality campaigns, or help fund economic empowerment in women's communities. There are, after all, many different ways to be a feminist ally in today's world.
