5 Feminist Gifts for the Powerful Women In Your Life
While, sadly, you cannot gift equal pay, equal rights or equal chances for a promotion, there are still ways in which you can show the powerful women in your life your support.
It is not just the word 'FEMINIST' that makes it an obvious choice. The necklace is handmade by a female artist in Estonia and distributed by Studio Cosmica- a female-owned business. By buying from Studio Cosmica, you support women-owned businesses and get to wear a cute piece of jewelry as a bonus. Cool, isn't it?
2. Margaret Atwood's The Testaments.
A book is always a good idea, especially if it's written by Margaret Atwood, one that's longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019 at that.
- UN Women

4. A motivational bracelet.
Choose a quote by Maya Angelou, Jane Austen or yourself to remind your sister/mother/friend how valuable and capable they are.
5. A programming course
Unless she can code already, chances are your female friend was not encouraged to develop her STEM skills. So bridge that gap, and help a girl out. Find an online programming course here.
What other gifts would you add? A hammer to smash the glass ceiling, maybe?
