The current political climate, coupled with the recent barrage of sexual harassment and abuse allegations against powerful men in almost every industry, is mobilizing feminists to smash the patriarchy with their every move. With the holidays fast approaching, consider giving a gift that does double duty: These 18 feminist holiday presents also help support marginalized communities by giving back.
While giving and receiving gifts can be one of the most enjoyable parts of the holidays, if I'm being honest, I don't want or need the majority of things that are given to me. In a world with too much stuff, the last thing I want is more stuff. However, what can make a gift meaningful is when it's something that I'll actually use, and also lifts others up. This feels like true giving because it's not just supporting capitalism, it's supporting people who are fighting to advance the rights of others. And, making life better by giving something that also has a positive impact on people's lives is really what the season of giving is all about.
If you want your gift to not only bring joy to the recipient, but to also contribute to making the world less of a dumpster fire, check out these feminist gifts that also give back.
