📞 hablamos de AFROFEMINISMO con Francisca♡ @felina_kuriosa
[Ella es afrofeminista y estudiante de Psicología. Interesada en temáticas de derechos y reconocimiento de niñas, niños y adolescentes afrodescendientes que habitan el territorio chileno] 😁🙊La Francisca se acercó a nosotras y nos contó su inquietud al respecto y la falta de info sobre el #afrofeminismo como una de las tantas aristas para luchar contra el patriarcado. Pero, que tanto conociamos, nos dimos cuenta que nada !!!....por eso en @lagendafeminista
Le damos el espacio para informarnos.
♡<¿Qué es? >
Es un movimiento que surge en pleno apogeo de la lucha por el sufragio femenino liderado por mujeres blancas burguesas. Bajo este contexto en 1852 en una conferencia realizada para debatir acerca de esta temática, Sojoumer Truth, una mujer negra y esclavizada, alza la voz y señala “ Acaso no soy una mujer?” Esta interpelación dejaba en evidencia que el movimiento de las sufragistas de la época no había considerado dentro de su lucha a las mujeres negras, quienes eran fuertemente violentadas -física y psicológicamente- a consecuencia de la trata esclavista... ¿Quieres saber más sobre el afrofeminismo? 🖐

“Womanhood is not limited to motherhood.” 👩 The @dior SS20 show exhibited just that as it presented its feminist collection in a runway shaped like a womb! 👏 Created by artist @judy.chicago, the structure sat proudly behind the Rodin museum in Paris. 🇫🇷 The collection is by @mariagraziachiuri, the first female creative director of Dior, and is a reflection on femininity and creativity. She asks us: “What if women ruled the world?” 🌎💖 #DiorCouture #WeShouldAllBeFeminists

🌹We believe love should be celebrated all year long. Without falling in the trap of commercialised seasons, a simple acknowledgement, "I love you", doing the dishes while singing a silly tune together, are the perfect gifts, if you ask us - do you agree ? 🇫🇷Nous croyons que l'amour doit être célébré toute l'année. Sans tomber dans le piège des saisons commercialisées, une simple reconnaissance, "je t'aime", faire des tâches ménagères en chantant ensemble une mélodie idiote, sont les cadeaux parfaits. Êtes-vous d'accord?

We love supporting eco-feminist brands but it’s equally, if not more, important to buy clothing second hand. Buying second hand is the most sustainable and budget friendly option. 📷: reposted from @doan_ly
We fell in love with the book Good Night Stories for @Rebelgirls from the first time we heard of it, “a children's book packed with 100 bedtime stories about the life of 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by 60 female artists from all over the world.” It was so cool to imagine humans across the country reading their children to sleep with these amazing stories. We were browsing a bookstore in Colombia when we found the second edition of this book on a shelf and were in awe. These stories weren’t just being shared across the country, but across the world. We immediately purchased our first copy of the series in Spanish, thinking we’d buy the first book in English when we returned home. It was not even a couple months later, when we found ourselves browsing a book store in Montreal, where we came across the books again, this time in French. There we were, again in awe, looking at this book, inspired by all these amazing women we had never learned about, dedicating ourselves to learning a new language and buying a copy of the first book… this time in French. 😂 We feel so honored to be creating along side women all over the world, in the effort to spread more women’s stories, and we are so excited to share these stories (in three languages) to the youths in our lives.
We hope you join the movement, to reshaping our history and spreading #victressvibes.
Sample sizes- scoop yourself a bargain!
Today's stocktake unearthed a few little gems, including some sweary bois [most of which you've already snapped up]
There are also a few sample sizes from 6 months ago when I wasn't sure quite what I was doing- hence the creation of a SALE section of the website- cheap, awesome, SUPER limited.

Another 90s cardigan going up on Poshmark! I just live how vibrant the colors are and how comfy they are to wear. I have multiple in my personal closet and so can’t get enough! ❤️

🌹There's no better gift to give to a lady than one that empowers women. Gifts that are made responsibly, that serve a real purpose to advance women.
No matter what you choose, the feminist in your life will definitely love the story behind it as much as the gift itself.
Check out our blog on gift ideas to empower your lady on Valentine's day !

Peu importe ce que vous choisissez, la féministe de votre vie aimera certainement l'histoire derrière autant que le cadeau lui-même.

Feminism in the 21st century is a controversial topic with few standing by it and few questioning it. Nonetheless, women are doing wonders in the workplace and it seems that the future is truly FEMALE! Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya F, who just debuted in ‘Jawani Janeman,’ believes in this statement and was seen wearing this message on her tee in her recent interview, which is quite an interesting take on fashion.

#WildWednesday in #animalprint, caftans, cozy knits, and big scarves. .
Look 1 features an oversize white knit that is perfect for a seaside stroll along with zebra print cotton pants that are also a perfect beach staple in an old woman favorite print. A brooch cluster ups the eccentric old woman factor. Sea shell earrings and a necklace of oyster charms are the perfect seaside accessories. Floral glasses are like the wallpaper in the sitting room in the old woman's cottage.
Look 2 features a flowy cheetah print 3/4 sleeve dress under the perfect cocoon cardigan, which waits on the coat rack next to the door of any old woman who lives by the sea for those occassiins when a draft blows through or she must step outside to her porch to stare wistfully at the dunes remembering her youth and the many bosom friends who have passed by her steps in summers long gone. A cozy scarf keeps things warm and a brooch cluster and petals are accurate accessories. .
Look 3 showcases beachy waves from salty air and a cable knit chunky sweater that speaks to Irish coastlines and general longing. Paired with an asymmetrical hem leopard print skirt and a scarf, this look is perfect for gazing longingly at the waves lapping at the shoreline, contemplating your own existence. .
Look 4 is truly a winterized summer look, in a leopard print caftan that could double as a cover up at the beach or a beac blanket tbh! With a wool sweater/blazer and a maroon scarf, you are ready to take in the sharp winds that whip the sea into a frenzy as you walk the coastline, daring the waves to encroach on your little pocket of beach, cursing Poseidon for his unruly temper. You are the master of the ocean now. .
Look 5 is honestly just another take in look 4 but with a top knot and a leopard shawl sweater, also stowed in the coat rack of every old woman who lives by the sea. .

FASHION FEMINIST 🌏
Fast Fashion is definitely a feminist issue. Up to 80% of all garment workers world wide are female. Within textile supply chains those girls and women are often exposed to sexual abuse, unsafe working conditions or discriminating wage structures.
True change can only happen by including ALL women in our efforts and aiming to rise up together for equality of chances!

I love this quote- and while it is not an infographic about the harm caused by excess and waste, it is a post about focusing on what matters. I know we signal to the world who we are and what we value by our physical appearance and what we wear but what really matters is the tofu inside of us! 💕
Picture description: post with a quote from Albert Einstein about the importance of being a good human!

Finally, a new post! Sophia Loren and the Body Hair Issue
Why do so many people find a little bit of fuzz under a woman's arms so darned objectionable?

I can’t believe how inconsistent and rubbish I am at posting here right now, last week we had some tough news and are feeling a bit shaken. We also celebrated Clems forth birthday. A party that included extreme emotional tantrums 🙃 no point sugar coating it this adulting malarkey is HARD.
In the meantime want to tell you this and the grey option are back in stock, and forest is looking just beautiful here on @sarahphilpottwriter #libertéegalitésororité #organiccotton#blackandbeech#feministshirt#feministfashion

Suerte que las cosas van cambiando, pero por mucho que cambien si uno no es consciente de lo que vale... Aquí tenéis dos modelos de diferentes de camiseta... Si estáis interesadas corred ya que hay para muy poquitas... Espero que os gusten...🤗
We use @pinterest a lot to share ideas and create mood boards for branding and designs. Sometimes though, you gotta get out of the digital space and create a tangible inspo collage and just sketch on paper.
#triviatuesday time! This is a sneak peek of some initial sketches for an upcoming design! Who inspired this design?
Some clues: ✨The main words on the shirt will read "Rebel and Create"
✨They use art to bring awareness to corruption, oppression and violations on human rights
✨There are many of them
Let us know who you think it is in the comments! Stay tuned for the answer tomorrow!

Check out the latest INTERLOCUTOR conversation with fashion designer Shinhye Suk of LEHHO - (Interview by Isabelle Sakelaris) https://interlocutorinterviews.com/new-blog/2019/11/4/interview-shinhye-suk … #lehho#fashion#feministfashion#Interviews
This absolute queen @behindthenetra in our Political Feminist top. Her poetry is so so powerful, check out her work! ‘how did womxn’s bodies become so political?
damn, ain’t it hypocritical that are bodies are regulated more than guns. but they’re not so concerned about anatomy of their sons and where they decide to stick it.
admit it. womens bodies are at war💥’
Flower power - Part II
This time in a short dress format and with an amazing pale purple and violet colour palette 🦄
I can ever have enough of puff sleeves and square neckline! Such a perfect finding 🥰
Fits S-M. .
You can wear it as a dress or as a shirt, at your command a different outfit ;) DM for inquiries.
When one of your all-time favourite writers buys a tee and wears it for Galentine's Day, it's a pretty great day.
This woman's words have had significant impact on my life- both through her own searingly relatable examination of our patriarchal culture and its attitude towards women, and the recommendations of other feminist writers whose books I have also purchased and learned from.
Happy Galentine's day, ladies - may the rosé flow abundantly xx
*Update* Yep, I'll definitely be ordering a restock on this tee tomorrow, don't worry!
