14 holiday gifts for the miniature feminist in your life
While 2017 has been a dumpster fire of a year, it hasn’t been without its feminist victories. In January, the Women’s March resulted in a global protest advocating for inclusion and equality. In March, “Fearless Girl” was installed on Wall Street and sparked a national conversation on female empowerment and gender equality. In July, U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters shut down Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin in the now famous “reclaiming my time” clip and marked a powerful reclamation for women and people of color. In October, exposés ousted Harvey Weinstein as a serial sexual assaulter and led to the disintegration of powerful men and a cultural reckoning with the formidable #MeToo movement.
All these events signify a turning point in feminist history. While pussy grabbers sit in the highest level of public office, powerful men prey on vulnerable individuals in the workplace, and women are repeatedly diminished in their fields, our country has also mobilized. Much like “Fearless Girl,” this generation will nourish a brighter and better feminist future through the next generation of culture shifters.
To celebrate the miniature feminists who will shape our future America, we’ve compiled the ultimate feminist gift guide for the phenomenal children in your lives.
