That’s right, I’m a feminist. And you know what? That’s not a dirty word. As Emma Watson recently explained, “Feminism is about giving women choice. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality.” So if you believe that women and men should be treated as equals, then you my friend are a feminist too. I was fortunate to have grown up with female and male role models who believed that I could do whatever I wanted and be whatever I wanted. I’ve worked hard for what I’ve achieved and am thankful for my support system. There are some girls, however, that don’t have those supports and have no idea of the potential greatness that lies within them. This is not a “women’s issue”. This is a human issue. Whether you’re a man or a woman, feminism should matter to you because human life matters to you. Feminism is not pro-women or anti-man, it’s about equality in every sense of the word. I’m not typically vocal about my political/ moral/ ethical beliefs, but being a feminist is something I will always, always speak up about. Thankfully, the combination of strong feminist leaders and the comeback of the graphic tee in conjunction with the tumultuous political climate has lead to a beautiful thing: feminist t-shirts. Maria Grazia Chiuri, Christian Dior’s first-ever female artistic director, took the words right out of my mouth when she created the iconic “We Should All Be Feminists” tee for Spring/Summer 2017. This then led to a slew of powerful feminist apparel. This “The Future is Female” t-shirt is made by Otherwild and 25% of the proceeds go directly to Planned Parenthood. The original t-shirt design was made for Labyris Books in the 1970’s but is re-emerging now as one of the feminist’s “must-have” pieces. And I can’t talk about this t-shirt without talking about my “Nasty Woman” t-shirt, which I purchased from Google Ghost with 50% of the cost going directly to Planned Parenthood. So ladies and gentlemen, I challenge you to consider what being a feminist means to you. It’s 2017. It’s only logical: women’s issues are human issues and therefore, we should all be feminists.
Besides this bold tee, there’s quite a bit going on with this look- but isn’t it fun? I paired this graphic tee with an on-trend pleated skirt, my favourite Jimmy Choos, and the latest addition to my collection…the Gucci GG logo belt.
