As fashionistas continue to dress up basic T-shirts, this has been a fashion trend I’ve been wanting to try for some time. Instead of a quirky phrase, I thought I’d wear a statement shirt. I finally styled one the way I wanted to and thought church would be the perfect place to wear it. Paired with a bold color, my “we should all be feminists” tee complimented this outfit in such a casual way.
I wanted to make a statement without speaking but I found myself explaining to men and children why we still live in an unequal world. My female friends rolled their eyes after reading my shirt while others called me bold for being a feminist “even on a Sunday”.
Don’t be afraid to make a statement with your fashion choices; I sure didn’t.
“Feminist a person who believes in the social, economic and political equality of the sexes. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general—but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women.” –Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi
