10 Party Dresses For Feminists

by Sica Schmitz | Posted on November 24 2017

Merriam-Webster may disagree, but I think feminism is a verb. 

(but don't tell them I said so, because they are one of my favorite accounts on Twitter and I want them to think I'm cool)

The way I see it, it's not enough to theorize or even believe in the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes: we must also act upon it.

Feminism doesn't mean disapproving of the wage gap; it means buying fair trade, since over 80% of garment workers are women, and most are making less than $3 per day. Feminism doesn't mean being indignant about the lack of women represented in politics; it means shopping with women owned businesses, since this year only one Fortune 500 apparel company has a female CEO. Feminism doesn't mean feeling angry about the constant verbal and physical harassment of women; it means choosing vegan textiles to take a stance against entitlement to others bodies.

So, as we head into a season of holiday parties and family gatherings and a fresh new year, let's not just talk about feminism, let's wear it.
