Looking for a way to show your support in honor of Equal Pay Day 2017? Putting your 79 cents toward a brand that aims to economically empower women is a good place to start, especially when it gives you the opportunity to show your opinion on the gender pay gap year-round. Style meets social conscience in Fashionable's limited-edition Feminist tee and pouch.
Both the tee and the pouch read "Femini$t," so there's a big nod to the wage gap. Of course, a major part of feminism is believing in the economic equality of men and women, so these pieces are pointed ways to acknowledge that aspect of activism and awareness.
Aside from letting everyone know where you stand (and where everyone should stand), the tees and pouches also benefit economically disadvantaged women in different parts of the world. Fashionable employs women who have overcome major adversity (including prostitution, poverty, and addiction) in Ethiopia, Mexico, Peru and here in the United States. The tee in particular is made in Peru, and the pouch is made in Mexico.
You can buy both on the Fashionable website — the red leather pouch is $68, and the tees are $36. There's a men's style available too, for the ~woke~ men in your life or just for you, if you prefer that style (that's my personal pick, anyway).

If you buy a tee and a pouch together, you'll get a $14 discount, too.

April 4 may be the official Equal Pay Day, but these pieces can be a great reminder to work toward closing the wage gap all year long.
