Look no further, lovers of gender equality: a feminist clothing line exists, and it is totally rad. Feminist Apparel is a non-profit feminist-friendly company that goes by the slogan “Anyone Can Feminist.” As they state on their website: “We are of the opinion that the negative connotations of feminism are unwarranted, misinformed, and stem from a present and mainstream culture of dominance; one that does a disservice to women, men, and all of humanity.”
Feminist Apparel are not trying to “rebrand feminism” as commonly argued; they are trying to foster an important dialogue. In addition to promoting feminist acceptance and speaking out against stigmatization, the shirts, sweaters, and gifts featured on Feminist Apparel are super fun to look at. With charming phrases such as “Pizza Rolls Not Gender Roles”, “Cats Against Catcalls”, “My Favorite Position Is CEO,” and “Less Patriarchy, More Cupcakes ,“ the shirts are playful while also addressing serious issues of sexism such as street harassment and harmful gender stereotypes.
With sizes ranging from toddlers, juniors, teens, to adults of both genders from XS- 5XL, the products aim to be inclusive to all audiences. Featuring gnarly designs from the “Feminist Creative” (a collection of feminist artists that supply and submit their graphics for creation), the clothing and accessories from Feminist Apparel add the perfect flare to any outfit while also fiercely advocating for gender equality across your chest.
Whether worn on your lazy day around the house with a pair of sweatpants or dressed up with nice jeans on a date (Don’t support feminism? Don’t get a second date), these shirts are fashion forward-politically, socially, and literally.
