23 Feminist Gifts for the Powerful Women In Your Life

Design by Morgan McMullen

There are brands who talk about empowering women to feed into the timely narrative, and then there are brands who are actually doing it by providing inclusive sizing and a genuine presence in women's everyday lives. Sometimes it's hard to discover the ones in the latter group, especially when the first item that pops up when Googling "feminist gifts" is that "The Future Is Female" t-shirt everyone and their mother owns.

Here, we rounded up the perfect gifts for the badass women in your life that speak to everything feminism stands for—equality, empowerment, and freedom—from brands that are doing it right.
