33 Awesome Feminist Gifts for Your Friends

These are the perfect gifts, from a feminist perspective that is.

Giving a gift should be a very personal action that is accompanied by a healthy dose of soul searching and introspection to determine what is the right one to give to someone you hold dear.

That’s all good and nice, but gift giving can also be an opportunity to further advance the advocacy towards a healthy, more egalitarian, and diverse society where we are all treated with respect. How? Simply by selecting a feminist-approved gift for giving! It’s just a specifically selected item that reflects the correct values our movement seeks to spread, and don’t worry, they are also a lot of fun! Check them out.

#4 Brotopia By Emily Chang

The Brotopia by Emily Chang travel product recommended by Alexandra Nima on Pretty Progressive.

Why? Having seen and just barely survived the music and Entertainment scene with its megalomanic, sexist to pedophile perverts I thought it couldnt get much worse.

Now that I build a tech startup on the side, I was introduced to a yet even more disgusting industry. Or, maybe disgusting in a different way. Within my first 6 months in the scene (as a disabled female building on a high tech product), I experienced pretty much any of the behaviour described by Emily Chang, from sexist jokes to being treated like an intellectually disadvantaged person to sexual harassment in more or less the same style as described in the book.

I think it is INCREDIBLY important to be prepared, to know what one will have to deal with in a more and more technology governed world, and to know that some people have walked this road before and had their voice heard.
