Best Gifts For A Feminist in 2019

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. 

1. A Feminist gold necklace 

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. 

It's a sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, in which Atwood answers the questions that have tantalized readers for decades. The Testaments pick up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testament of three female narrators from Gilead.

3. Donation to a female charity.
Why not donate to a charity fighting for women's rights, or single mothers, in the name of your friend? It's a thoughtful gift that can help change someone's life or at the very least will be used towards the cause you deeply care about: women's rights. Some of the charities include:

 

Feminist Organizations

 

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?
