March is hailed as Women's History Month, but, in reality, women and feminism deserve to be celebrated every day. From catcalling to the wage gap, women too often get the short end of the socioeconomic stick in a myriad of ways, and maintaining constant awareness of the need for equality is the only way to ensure that all women, regardless of race, sexuality, or class, are treated equal. 

You might ask: What can we do to keep this awareness up? In addition to advocating, educating ourselves, and supporting female creatives and entrepreneurs, we can also wear our politics on our sleeves. Fashion is an excellent way of making a statement and reminding ourselves and those around us of what matters—not to mention, fashion is fun! So check out some of our favorite feminist t-shirts that you can grab right now to wear your values and show the people around you how you feel.

She has also written about sexual wellness, politics, culture, and fashion at Marie Claire and at publications including The New York Times, HuffPost Personal, Bustle, Alma, Muskrat Magazine, O'Bheal, and elsewhere.

She has worked extensively in the e-commerce and sales spaces since 2020, and spent two years at Drizly, where she developed an expertise in finding the best, highest quality goods and experiences money can buy.

Deeply political, she believes that skincare, haircare, and sexual wellness are central tenets to one's overall health and fights for them to be taken seriously, especially for people of color. She also loves studying makeup as a means of artistic expression, drawing on her experience as an artist in her analysis of beauty trends. She's based in New York City, where she can be found watching movies or running her art business when she isn't writing.
